World Maritime Day 2016

World Maritime Day was created by the United Nations via the International Maritime Organisation to celebrate the interantiona;l maritime industry's contribution towards the world eceonomy, especially in shipping.

The museum is celebrating organising a ceremony that gives us an opportunity to reflect on the many contributions the maritime industry has made to society and reflect on the lives of over 1.6 million people who work within this industry.

The ceremony was held at the newly returned Seafarers Memorial at 12:30pm approximately. It was heralded by the MUA band and members as they marched across Pyrmont Bridge towards the museum.
