The Maritime Museum may be temporarily closed, but we're working hard on exciting new ways to bring the museum to you with fabulous digital events and exhibitions!
In our newly created 'Virtual Ocean Talks', you'll experience our famously engaging and lively discussions from the comfort of your home. For our next round of talks we're bring the Classic and Wooden Boat Festival to you with a series of discussions from experts in the world of boating and yacht racing! The first in this Virtual Talk series was Cook: Man Or Myth - click on the tile below to view a video of the event. 


- Simply register online* (details for each event will be released closer to the date)
- You'll be sent a reminder to tune in the day before, and also one hour before the event.
- Login to the event at start time (7.30pm (AEST))
Best of all - it's FREE and anyone can register! 

*Note: While our first Virtual Talk was hosted via the Zoom platform, future talks will be hosted on Webinar Jam.

Our oceans are at a critical point in history, and the maritime museum has never had a more vital role in marine conservation, exploration and sharing the wonder and mystery of our oceans. Our talks offers a unique experience to immerse yourself in the cutting edge of marine science, provocative art, and controversial thought leadership – all up close and personal.
