Our fun-filled children’s gallery for 0-7s

Polar exploration, pirates and a host of other maritime themes are brought to life in this playful and immersive gallery. Stoke the boiler of a steamship, buy and sell fish in the marketplace, and make new friends in the interactive boatyard.

There’s a buggy park nearby and easy access to all the facilities you need to have a stress-free visit. AHOY! is a quick lift-ride away from the Great Map Café on the first floor of the Museum where you can re-fuel with coffee and cake after playtime.
