Calypso Exhibition, Cousteau signs agreement in Malta

The Cousteau Society has signed a major agreement with the Maltese Government to exhibit the story of Calypso in the Malta Maritime Museum.

Malta, an Island State with 10 000 years of history at the heart of the Mediterranean will offer a major exhibition about Calypso expeditions..

The iconic ship of Jacques Cousteau was once a wooden mine sweeper built in Seattle in 1942. She sailed to Malta during World War II and was then used as a ferry between the island of Malta and the neighbor Island of Gozo. She was named Calypso, after the legendary nymph, whose home was on Gozo.
