Come hear about the intriguing existence of submarines throughout the centuries from Liz Williams, the Museum’s Collections Management Technician. Regarded as part of the “Silent Service” by the American public, the long history of submarines is often hidden below the waves with the subs themselves. The development and improvements that brought these vessels through to modern times have often come out of necessity or lessons learned from emergencies. Through this lecture, we’ll discuss several key submarines that helped change the design, safety, and capabilities of American submarines.
Maritime Connections lectures are free with Museum admission, but seating is limited. This lecture will be held in the lower lobby of the Museum.
