Maritime Heritage Series: ‘Life Aboard Ship, Means Going at Sea’

September 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

When nature calls, you must go! But where do you go while at sea? You may be surprised by the historical practices of something so basic as using the bathroom when it comes to being on board a ship many years ago. Join Associate Curator of Education Christine Brin for an informative look at the evolution of the ship’s head (bathroom). She will cover historic sailing vessels, ironclad warships, and submarines, related to this interesting aspect of maritime life you may never have thought about.

The program is part of our Maritime Heritage Series, informal lectures held in the museum auditorium and focused on North Carolina’s rich maritime history, coastal environment, and culture. Admission is free, and registration is not required.

The Museum reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet the minimum participant requirement up to one week before the program is scheduled.
