Boston-based Liberty Mutual Insurance will sponsor all public school visits to the USS Constitution Museum from Sept. 2012 to June 2015, thus allowing for free field trips for students of all ages, in and outside of Massachusetts, the museum said.
The USS Constitution Museum recently opened an interactive exhibit called the “Old Ironsides 1812 Discovery Center,” which features computer activities simulating shipboard life, interactive lessons about the War of 1812 and its major events, and a feedback wall that enables visitors to deliver their own messages.
In a statement, Liberty Mutual president and chief executive David Long said: “By keeping alive the inspiring story of ‘Old Ironsides’ and its crew, the USS Constitution Museum has developed a range of innovative programs that teach our children about teamwork and service. As a Boston-based company that advocates these same values, we feel the best way to support the Constitution’s legacy is to ensure students can experience these life lessons, first hand.”
Liberty Mutual Insurance employs more than 45,000 people around the world. As of Dec. 31, it had $117.1 billion in consolidated assets, $99.3 billion in consolidated liabilities, and $34.7 billion in annual consolidated revenue.
