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.

You can find out what’s on at the museum here and you may even be lucky enough to meet Bailey – the newly appointed Assistant Director of Seagulls who just happens to be a rescue Border Collie.
