Save Brisbane’s Maritime Museum

The maritime museum looks in a bad way. The old Forceful can no longer go to sea. One member of the museum says: “No doubt the museum has been run by enthusiasts who did pretty well and worked selflessly – but (they) have come to the end of the road.” MARITIME MUSEUM UNDER PRESSURE – PLEASE SIGN PETITION​.

The Forceful, built in 1925, served the port of Brisbane for 45 years, being the last coal fired tug in operation.

Maybe a petition will force the hand of state government and rescue the museum.

Perhaps the Queensland Museum should take it over?
