The de Vlamingh plate is moving – for a while…

If you’re visiting the WA Shipwrecks Museum in Term 4, 2016 and Term 1, 2017 please be aware that the de Vlamingh plate will not be on display at the Galleries during this time. It will however be displayed at the nearby WA Maritime Museum between 31 October 2016 and 27 April 2017 alongside the Hartog dish in the Travellers and Traders in the Indian Ocean World exhibition.
