Have you ever wondered what actually goes on in a museum? How does the Curator choose which objects to put on display? How does the Visitor Services Coordinator choose the items for the gift shop? Do you have some awesome suggestions for educational programming to run by our Education Coordinator? Maybe you’ve been to one of the Museum Supervisor’s lectures and have more questions for her. Or, you just want to get to know the staff a little better. Come have coffee with Casey, Danielle, Alexis, and Kristin* on the Burton Store Porch at the Florida Maritime Museum. – We look forward to meeting you!

*Staff participation varies.
