The National Museum of the Royal Navy Hartlepool is the perfect place for a family adventure as you journey to an authentic 18th century seaport and the spectacular HMS Trincomalee. Travel back in time and take in the 18th century seaport and its beautiful waterside setting. See how tradesmen like tailors, printers, and instrument makers earned a wage, and how people spent their leisure time playing traditional games. Experience the explosive firepower of our guns with exciting live demonstrations and re-enactments all year round. The historic quayside is brought to life as you meet press-ganged sailors from the Georgian Navy who lived on-board HMS Trincomalee.
Let your little ones loose at the Children’s Maritime Adventure Centre, and challenge yourselves on-board our new adventure playship for Summer 2019. See the secrets of war unfold before you in a moving and stirring story of HMS Prosperity. Move through the exhibition as each part of the ship is brought to life as the stories of those who served on-board are revealed. Narrated by a young member of the ship’s crew, the dramatic reconstruction of what happened is unleashed for all to see, hear, and feel. Learn about the bloody reality of war, and how the men prepared to battle the French.
