Marine History and Titanic: Communications Through the Ages

Virtual Program

If a field trip to our museum is not possible, we offer a interactive virtual program where interpretive staff explore the evolution of modern communications and technology – discover inventors and innovations strongly linked to Nova Scotia! The story of the RMS Titanic’s tragic sinking on April 15, 1912, is historically explored and how technology has since advanced between ocean, land and space, creating a more global culture. School and community group bookings welcome
