1 Down, 2 Up and then some

One of Maritime Compass's fans recently alerted me to the comings and goings of West Coast Maritime Museums.

For those of us who have been following the trials and tribulations of Seattle's maritime museum, it appears that all has ended sadly. The Odyssey Maritime Museum is set to close.

Meanwhile across the Sound in Bremerton, the Puget Sound Navy Museum held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the doors of the museum after being moved to its new location on the Bremerton waterfront Aug. 24.

While further North, the City of North Vancouver welcomes the provincial government's announcement of its official support of plans to establish a National Maritime Centre for the Pacific and the Arctic on the City's historic waterfront.

Back down south the Tahoe Maritime Museum’s staff is already preparing for the renovated museum’s grand opening celebrations this coming May.
