The museum's 50th year has offered an opportunity for us to encourage Halsey to regale us with stories about the founding of the museum and its early days. We've recorded many of these, and while we will make them available online eventually, this is your opportunity to hear some of these stories straight from the founder's mouth!

This will be the first in-person lecture we've done in a while, and though it will also be live-streamed over Zoom, we encourage you to join us if you are so inclined!

Please note that, for reasons related to heating and social distancing, this event will be held in the historic Burnside Building on the 2nd floor. Unfortunately, this space is not handicap accessible. Future in-person lectures will likely shift back to the Hall of Boats, and a new lift is being installed that will enable those with mobility challenges to visit the 2nd floor of the museum.
