To celebrate the Summer of Play, join the National Maritime Museum and Jaques of London in the Museum grounds, for maritime-inspired games such as quoits and dominoes. 

Life on board ship could be difficult and sailors often played dominoes, cards and more to pass the time, whilst games such as quoits have long been popular on cruise liners. Try your hand at giant dominoes, quoits and more, all for free this summer. 

On Wednesday 11th August, we are also joined by the Caribbean Social Forum who will be bringing 'Games without Wires' to the grounds. Meet members and learn how to play games from across the world. 

Find the games on the lawns at the front of the National Maritime Museum, and drop in and play every day across the week. In wet weather, find the games on the Great Map!

Free / Suitable for all ages and abilities
