The Detroit Historical Society proudly presents our 2022 Centennial Ship Master's Ball at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum. Join us in honoring those who have charted our course over the past 100 years. Sponsors and Honorary Host Committee members will be celebrated at the VIP reception, set within our newest exhibition: Maritime Miniatures: The Art of the Ship Model.  

Not to be missed by Maritime enthusiasts, this exhibition features rarely seen ship models from the Detroit Historical Society’s expansive collection on display throughout the museum. Guests will enjoy a seated riverside dinner, program, and auction beneath a starlit canopy in The Aaron and Helen L. DeRoy Hall, followed by a strolling afterglow.
