“The Australian National Maritime Museum is committed to sharing the country’s maritime history and connecting stories, objects, people, and places that are part of Australia’s heritage. Through the Longest Night of Museums, we can extend from a local audience to a global audience, showcasing Australia’s unique maritime history and significant historical vessels such as the HMAS Vampire,” said Peter Tattersall, Head of Learning at the Australian National Maritime Museum.
World of Warships fans and non-fans alike will get a glimpse of plenty of real life war history on May 18 from 6PM AEST through World of Warships YouTube, Twitch and Steam channels. Each museum will take turns in showcasing what they have to offer in regards to naval history, starting off in Japan and then finishing in Pearl Harbour. The livestream will share plenty of naval history content as well as interactive elements including quizzes and Q&A’s.
