View Thompson Room

Thompson Room is a section of the museum devoted to Incat’s presence at the Olympic Games in 2000. During the Olympic Games, Incat Hull 057, a 98m wave piercing catamaran was berthed in Darling Harbour and used by Austrade as a networking centre for Australian and international business people.

One of the modifications made for the role was the recreation on the vehicle deck, of the bar of the Shipwright Arms Hotel, a public house in Hobart also known as Incat’s second office, and this now forms part of the museum collection.
