This is a new lecture series presented by The Mariners' Museum and Park staff.

Go behind the scenes of the Museum and explore our collection while learning about the work the staff does. This series will explore the ways the staff cares for the collection, designs the exhibits, brings objects to life, and helps everyone to connect with the world's waters.

Objects can tell stories if one has the tools to listen. Chemistry has many tools that enable us to hear stories that are otherwise hidden to us. This talk will share how we use chemistry to listen to our objects.
