As on the deck below, the visitor will note the overhead hooks for the crew’s hammocks, as well as the hanging mess tables. Here, we are again in the main living area for the crew, just as on the deck below. It is this area that is used by the Living History Crew of the OLYMPIA as one of their main areas t demonstrate crew life aboard the OLYMPIA.

The Living History Crew of the OLYMPIA, a group of historians who intensively research life aboard OLYMPIA in the 1898 period, strives to bring the decks of the ship back to life. Visitors can see the members perform many activities typical of crew life over 100 years ago.
