For our Tea & Talks, museum volunteers, archival staff, and educators present unique artifacts from our collection, surrounded by discussions of maritime history and other seaworthy topics – all over a cup of tea and refreshments. With our virtual shift, we’re still providing the talk, but the tea and refreshments will be from the comfort of your own home
