Delaware Do-Gooder: Kalmar Nyckel Foundation


Kalmar Nyckel Foundation

Ahoy Mateys! The public is invited to come sail on or take a tour of the Kalmar Nyckel, the Tall Ship of Delaware, through October.
The original Kalmar Nyckel was one of America’s pioneering colonial ships, a Mayflower of the Delaware Valley. The original ship was built by the Dutch in Amsterdam in about the year 1625 and she would make a total of four roundtrip crossings of the Atlantic. Visitors also will enjoy an interactive maritime museum and a history of Wilmington along the Christina River - the city's major contribution to the age of the industrial revolution - inside galleries at the new Copeland Maritime Center.
