Erie Maritime Museum Celebrates Charter Day

The Erie Maritime Museum celebrates Pennsylvania’s 331st birthday on Charter Day, Sunday, March 11, 2012, by welcoming all visitors admission free that day.  The Museum is open from Noon until 5:00 p.m.  Niagara will not be in Erie for Charter Day, as she is in dry dock this month.

Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission sites throughout Pennsylvania participate in Charter Day annually, to commemorate Britain’s King Charles II granting the land we now know as Pennsylvania to William Penn in 1681.  To learn how other PATrails of History sites are celebrating Charter Day, visit the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission online at
