Hampton History Museum

  1. Hampton Carousel

    June 1, 2021, 11:00 AM - December 31, 2021, 8:00 PM @ Carousel Park & Hampton Carousel

    After being closed for over a year due to the pandemic, the Hampton Carousel opens for the 2021 season on June 1 with COVID protocols. Located in Carousel Park and operated by the Hampton History Museum, the former Buckroe Beach carousel is one of the City of Hampton’s most treasured historic assets. Built in 1920, the carousel is completely restored to its original beauty and housed in its own weather-protected pavilion at Carousel Park on the city’s downtown waterfront. It is one of only 170 antique wooden merry-go-rounds still existing in the U.S. Hand crafted by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company for the Buckroe Beach Amusement Park, Hampton's Carousel is a whirling tribute to the skill of its creators. The Hampton Carousel will operate under federal, state and City of Hampton COVID-19 protocols. Guests will be required to wear masks when inside the carousel building, practice social distancing, and use hand-sanitizer before and after rides.

  2. The Legacy of a Boatbuilder: Vincent Serio and the Hampton One-Design

    August 2, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    Join Vincent J. Serio, III, grandson of Vincent J. Serio, Sr., the designer and original builder of the Hampton One-Design, to hear how an immigrant from Sicily learned boatbuilding and broke into the yacht club community to create a life for his family in the United States. In this personal, yet universal story of the American Dream, Serio will share how his grandfather’s values of craftsmanship and pride in one’s work inspired generations of his family and others. He’ll offer insights into the boatbuilder’s art and the history of the one design movement in sailing after the 1920s. This talk is presented in conjunction with the museum’s special exhibit "Hampton One: Working, Building, and Racing on the Water" which closes August 22. Featuring a fully restored Hampton One Design sailboat, this image and artifact-rich exhibition explores Hampton's integral ties to, and love of, the water that surrounds us.
