Contact day Maritime Heritage & Museology

Maritime heritage comes in many forms. Shipwrecks, remains of downed planes, amphoras, old coins or even completely buried old settlements. All bear witness to a sometimes distant past and offer prior knowledge when confronting what is to come. Unfortunately, this underwater heritage is often invisible to the general public. That is precisely why museums are essential. They bring that much needed knowledge to the surface figuratively. How and why do they do that? Who do they reach and how do they see the future? These and many other questions will be discussed on Friday 8 November 2019, during the Contact day Maritime Heritage & Museology in Zeebrugge.

The contact day takes place in Dutch. Read all about the program and how to register on the Dutch page of our website.
