    Mini sailors stormed the new play ship at the National Museum of the Royal Navy as soon as it was launched on Friday 2 August 2019.

    Rope ladders were scaled, swings flown high, carousels whizzed round and pirates escaped down slides as the ship set sail for foreign shores. 

    Toddlers loved their very own mini sailing ship complete with slides and ladders of their own.  The low-level, inclusive carousel which accommodates wheelchairs was also a big hit.

    Emily Wallace (5) from Billingham said: “I liked the big yellow slide because we went very very fast!”.

    1. Engine Rooms

    ‘Our favourite part was the engine room - the darkness, the sound effects and vibrations all felt so real!’

    Did you know that the engine room on board HMS Caroline is still accessible to walk around today? Complete with rumbling sound effects, creative lighting it feels like the engines are still alive today and it really gives you a sense of what it was like for sailors who worked in this space.
