What's On

Summer Family Activities

1st August to 4th September, every day 10am to 5pm

Drop in to the Museum's Beverly Gallery, any time to have a go at solving our cryptic Royal Marines quizzes and crosswords and Commando activity sheets and trails. 

Hands on History!
New for Summer 2016 try one of our ‘Family explorer Backpacks’ and see if you have what it takes to hunt high and low to find the answers to the i-spy trail left behind! Use our multisensory camouflage helmet packs including a magnifying glass and  pair of binoculars to track your way around the galleries and find the clues. (limited number of backpacks are available and must be returned after use) 

Also dry on our range of dressing up uniforms and hats with our dressing up trolley available through August – try on hats from 350 years of Royal Marines History from the sailing Navy to the Current Royal Marine Commandos.
