Saturday 18 December – Sunday 2 January
From beautifully lit vessels to merry Take and Makes and lantern trails, Christmas at the Museum takes on the theme of Lanterns & Lights with a magical nautical twist.
Christmas has arrived
Decked in festive lights and sparkly stars, traditional wooden boats carry Christmas cheer. Using the Flying Flotilla, hung high from the Museum’s ceiling, the boats are lit with subtle ocean coloured hues and set amongst glistening star bursts.
Take & Make
Running everyday, 12.30pm – 3.30pm
Pick up your festive Take & Make pack and get Christmas crafting at home. On the run-up to Christmas create sea themed decorations to hang in your home. After Christmas make wishing wands and celebration party poppers to help us start the new year with a bang.
Museum lantern trail
Dotted throughout the Museum are hidden lanterns – will you find them all?
All of the Lanterns & Lights activities are free as part of the admission price. Pay once and get in free for a whole year.
