Maritime Heritage Series: Maritime Superstitions

May 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Cats, women, and banana peels were all considered bad luck if found on the deck of a ship, but why? Join Associate Museum Curator Christine Brin in the museum auditorium as she explores some of the more common maritime superstitions and why they may not have been as ridiculous as they appear at first glance. Free, no registration required for the in-person program, held in the museum auditorium. Or watch online live via the museum’s Facebook page or Zoom.
