6.30 – 8.30pm
As the national maritime museum for an island nation, we are proud to share stories of the sea and waterways.
Join us for a lively discussion with ocean science experts on the health of our rivers, streams, oceans and seas. These passionate ocean defenders and innovators are working to address the most critical issues we face in the twenty-first century. How does what we do as individuals impact on the health of our waterways for generations to come, and what can we do to improve this impact?
Note: Ticket includes light refreshments and the opportunity from 5.30 – 6.30pm to view an exhibition at the museum
