Shipwrecks Video in the Lake Union Virtual Museum

November 9, 2012

The bottom of Lake Union is a virtual underwater museum of Seattle’s maritime heritage. Many of us drive, run, or bike around the lake, or spend time on the lake’s surface in watercraft. But have you ever wondered what’s at the bottom of the lake? With the help of volunteer divers, marine archaeologists, government agencies and maritime businesses, The Center for Wooden Boats has been exploring the wrecks of boats and ships ranging from a 19th century tug boat to a World War II submarine chaser at the bottom of the lake. Vaun Raymond, creator of the Lake Union Virtual Museum, shares the project through a video he’s created with the support of 4Culture.

Watch the video and explore the virtual museum.
