We have many interactive stations throughout our museum, such as…
What it Feels Like …….. to be a welder!
Put on the welders mask, the riveter’s bunnet and pick up the riveting gun. Now, imagine holding it for 8 hours every day!
Don’t Drop a Red Hot Rivet!
Try and place the rivets into the slots using the gloves provided. Not as easy as it looks.
Move as many of the blocks from the loading area onto the ship, without the ship sinking below the surface of the water.
Interactive game where you must carefully steer the dinghy around the course. Watch you don’t get seasick, the floor moves!
Another interactive game where children can build their own puffer by selecting various options. At the end of the game, the puffer will steam across the screen, and give a score out of 10. Can you build the Puffer so that it sails from one end of the screen to the other?
Kids Play Area
Within the museum, you will discover a pirate ship where children can use items from the dressing-up box and become pirates, or for smaller children, there is a ballpool. Also close by is a boating pond who will interest all of us who are young at heart. You can use one of the readymade foam boats or purchase one to make yourself. Most days there are a couple of radio controlled boats available that have been built and donated by Museum Volunteers.
