Covid-19 Diary – Post Update June 17, 2020

A New Science History Series

It’s been weeks since the last Maritime Museum update, with the main thing to report that we are not open yet, but we anticipate being open the beginning of July.

In the meantime, while making all the preparation to reopen, those of us on site have also been close witness to some of the recent demonstrations. The experience of watching thousands of people a short distance away from one’s place of work while the same thing was and continues to take place across the nation was extraordinary to say the least.
