Live Programming

While we can’t physically be with you in our beloved Museum, we will do our best to bring the Museum to YOU through unique and interactive virtual programming!

Through live lectures and workshops, we will continue to share incredible stories that show how we are all connected through the world’s waters, and hopefully learn something together along the way. Keep checking back to this page as new programming gets added!

  • You can also access any live lectures or programs that you may have missed under the Programming Video Archives below.
  • There is no charge to view the videos, but an account may be required to ask questions or post comments.
