Value for money outdoor museum. The staff are friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. It is great that you can look around a galleon & the olde world's shops are fascinating. The scenarios are informative too & brought the era of press gangs to life.

To have such an important ship as the central exhibit within such a beatiful setting as Jackson Dock is a rare treat. HMS Trincomalee is a beautifully restored craft - and well worth a couple of hours exploration

Hello, We have a wide range of visitors from nursery schools and families. We find that young children respond in different ways to the exhibits, so we offer a free admission to any children under 5 years old.
