Virtual Program: Tea & Talks

Virtual Program: Tea & Talks

Regular price $5.00 Sale

The Maritime Museum of BC is going virtual with many of our public programs! 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 

 Join us for a program LIVE using Zoom Meetings, where they have the chance to interact with our museum educators.  After purchasing a Live program, you will receive a link to register for the Zoom Meeting.
