Our museum has been presented with the very rare opportunity to acquire the log books and related items from the famous Chinese Junk Ning Po. To learn more about the storied history of the ship, please join us for this special virtual event.


The event will feature Hans Van Tilburg, Ph.D., maritime archaeologist and historian for NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. His expertise is in Chinese nautical technology and the story of the Ning Po was part of his history dissertation at the University of Hawaii in 2002. Other guests include Tom Lynskey who recently debuted a video about the history of the Ning Po and Burrell "Bo" Clawson, current owner of the log book and related items.


This event is free to attend. All donations made when registering will go towards acquiring an important collection of Ning Po artifacts for the Catalina Island Museum.
