The Maritime Museum of B.C. is in a time of transition. In 2015, it was forced to vacate the structurally unsound building that it once occupied in Bastion Square. Since then, it has found a temporary home on Humboldt Street and nearly moved to Langford. Now, with a new board in place and a new vision, the Museum is looking for a permanent home in downtown Victoria. Matt and Jeremy welcome Jamie Webb (board president), Jelena Putnik (board member), and Brittany Vis (executive director) to the podcast for a frank and revealing discussion about cultural tourism, the role of museums in fostering reconciliation, attracting a new clientele to the museum, and how Victoria's downtown can evolve in the post-pandemic period.
