Sculptures based on objects from the museum collections and the archive had been placed on a table, available for vistors to touch and try on. A procession throughout the museum building took place on four occasions, featuring visitors and led by a casted captain. Together they were reading aloud the text "Kaptenens tal (The captain's Speech). All participants were dressed in albatross beaks and shark fins and carried an object of their choice from the table.
