PROUD TO SUPPORT THE SUNFLOWER
We’re proud to announce that the Maritime Museum is a Sunflower friendly venue. The Sunflower is a globally recognised symbol for non-visible disabilities.
Thanks to Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Australia & New Zealand our staff wearing a Sunflower badge have been trained to recognise this symbol and will be of assistance where they can.
You are encouraged to bring and wear your sunflower lanyard if you have one, or pick one up for free on arrival to the museum.
