The iconic wave-form rooftop of the Australian National Maritime Museum is the canvas for Inspired by the Sea, a collaboration with UTS animation students which evokes the sea’s majesty and mystery.

This fantastical maritime projection explores the sea’s power to influence artists and writers, and delves into how it has shaped us and our lives.

You can also enjoy a beverage at the sparkling glow bar or choose dinner delights from Sydney's tastiest food trucks. There's a host of family friendly activities to explore:

  • Be awed by luminescent bubble artists and roving performers.
  • Free face and body painting with a dazzling glow-in-the-dark palette.
  • Explore the popular family-friendly naval exhibition Action Stations, featuring an immersive film.
  • Head up to the Action Stations rooftop and see the museum’s projection and the city lights from an elevated perspective.

Join the fun each Friday and Saturday night of Vivid Sydney from 6–10pm on the Australian National Maritime Museum foreshore.  Entry is free, including exclusive Action Stations rooftop access and family friendly activities.
