Thursday 1 February - Wednesday 28 February

To celebrate Chinese New Year 2018, the Australian National Maritime Museum will offer Chinese language guided tours of the museum’s main galleries, exhibitions and attractions.
To be delivered in Mandarin, the tours will feature a visit to Captain Cook’s Endeavour replica, moored at the museum on iconic Darling Harbour. They will also include guided tours of a range of compelling exhibitions including Passengers (Australia’s immigration story by sea), Navigators (a showcase of Australia’s relationship with Asia and Europe, featuring maritime navigation instruments, charts and maps) and Gapu-Monuk Saltwater (the museum’s recently opened Indigenous exhibition exploring the landmark sea rights case of North-East Arnhem land).
Visitors on these tours will also have a photo opportunity on board the Endeavour with a 18th Century Captain’s hat, ideal for sharing. And, in keeping with this year’s Chinese zodiac Year of the Dog, they will also have the chance to meet the museum’s resident canine, Bailey Haggarty, famous for chasing the seagulls from the museum’s ships and wharves.
The tours are available for small groups of a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 35 people, and will run for approximately an hour.
Tickets are available for purchase on-site at the museum, or by booking online here.

The tours will include a 10% discount voucher to the museum’s gift shop, which features souvenirs, books and authentic Indigenous artefacts. Visitors can also wander through the museum’s waterfront precinct and take in Sydney’s picturesque Darling Harbour with a coffee or light meal at Yots Café.
