„1Sea - 4Stories“ opened at final location
The Lithuanian Sea Museum welcomed the touring exhibition in Klaipeda April 6, 2011. Despite the late spring weather, all the exhibition parts were unloaded and safely transported to the museum. All week through - the museum technicians and historians were working hard to put all the parts of the touring exhibition in one to make it ready for the opening April 15, 2011.
The museum itself - the opening of the touring exhibition “1 Sea -4 Stories” was a symbolic event for starting the high season, which annually begins April 15. From this date the summer time schedule becomes valid not only welcoming visitors on weekends.
During the opening, having in mind that this is the last stop of the touring exhibition and one of the last meetings of all museum partners in one place, we have asked our partners, museum directors, to tie up knots as symbols of our past, present and future cooperation hoping in the nearest future to implement new projects related to the maritime history preservation.
During the first weeks of the touring exhibition “1 Sea – 4 Stories” - in total approximately 1.000 visitors enjoyed the museum and the exhibition.
At the same day when the touring exhibition was opened at the Lithuanian Sea Museum - the international scientific conference “Wittinen – Secret of Lithuanian History” took place at the museum as an event to encourage people to get deeper into the history of maritime culture of the Lithuania Republic. Director of the Polish Maritime Museum Mr. Jerzy Litwin gave lecture “The Wicina – The Sister of the Vistula Szkuta”.
The exhibition "1Sea - 4Stories" will be opened until June 19, 2011.
