Are museums safe places for dangerous ideas? Michael Harvey from the Australian National Maritime Museum thinks so
This week Anna Clark and Tamson Pietsch chat with Michael Harvey from the Australian National Maritime Museum, located in Darling Harbour.
The museum was opened in 1991 and its core mission is to share Australia’s maritime heritage.
Michael’s love for maritime history spans both his professional and personal life. He says you can’t really understand Australia, including its economy, environments, people, national defence and geopolitics, unless you view it through the lens of its relationships with the seas, oceans and rivers within and around the nation.
