This aricle was written as a response to Pamela Ballinger's study of maritime museums in the Upper Adriatic and was based on the knowledge of this author on the museums in question, of places and circumstances of their origin, and of their broader historical context. It is this author's belief that Pamela Ballinger is insufficiently familiar with the area in question as well as with relevant publications from the field of social sciences. It seems that Ballinger's study had been written on the basis of preconceived, yet unsubstantiated conceptions that the museums, which help preserve and present cultural heritage of the people living along the Gulf of Trieste and which do not hide their Slovene identity, build walls between cultures. With her biased hints about their ties with nationalistic claims on the sea and on mainland territory Ballinger strayed far from scientific correctness.
