Dementia Action Day

Dementia Awareness Day at the National Maritime Museum

This day is being held to mark Dementia Action Week.

In partnership with Royal Borough of Greenwich there will be activities and information relating to dementia taking place, including representation of local organisations who are working towards, or who have already obtained, their dementia-inclusive accreditation.

You can experience ‘A Walk through Dementia’ with our virtual reality goggles or interact with maritime artefacts whilst sharing your sea story.

Other activities include:

Morning Stars Planetarium Show

This early morning show is for children with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and their families and carers. Explore the night sky and find out live from a Royal Observatory Astronomer what is visible on the night of your visit and the month ahead, with opportunities to ask questions afterwards.

This event saves 50% on the price of a planetarium show alongside access to the historic Royal Observatory, with Explainer-led activity and time to explore at your leisure. Carers go free.

Caird Library and Archive Open Day

Come along and discover the hidden treasures in the world’s greatest maritime library and archive. 

Highlights of our diverse collections will be on display, which include an English spy book from 1582, letters from Phillip II relating to the Spanish Armada of 1588, plus Cutty Sark documents and material concerning Astronomy and the moon.  

Further items include a watercolour of the Cutty Sark by the accomplished maritime artist Pelham Jones (1890-1950). This fine watercolour has never before been placed on public display.
