Admire Intricate Model Ships at Lannan Ship Model Gallery
The Lannan Ship Model Gallery is a truly unique place that is capable of delighting just about anyone, young or old. This Boston shop is filled from floor to ceiling with intricate model ships, some of which are so small they’ll fit into the palm of your hand, while others stand a good five feet off the ground. No matter how big or small, however, every single model ship is built with the same precision and attention to detail that an actual ship would have.
At Lannan Ship Model Gallery, you’ll find tiny hitch knots and bowlines tied into the ship’s ropes and rigging, as well as carefully aligned binnacles, sextants, barometers, and other instruments used aboard ships for navigation and meteorological readings. You can browse around the gallery and purchase a pre-built ship as-is, or you can commission a custom built ship of your own. Even if you’re not in the market to buy anything, regulars say it can be a lot of fun to simply browse around the store for an hour or so.
