Live Programming

While we can’t physically be with you in our beloved Museum and Park, 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! 

On select Fridays, join us for a Live event with author and historian John V. Quarstein. John will give a 15-minute presentation live from his home in Hampton, Virginia, about a Civil War event or other various topics. Viewers are welcome to send John comments or questions during the presentation, and he will answer them following his talk.

There is no charge to view the videos, but an account may be required to ask questions or post comments.
