The Museum features
interactive exhibits that combine history with cutting-edge technology.
While exhibits are geared to all ages, children are encouraged to have
hands-on activities with most exhibits and demonstrations. Some of the
friendly exhibits includes cooperage (wood buckets) puzzle, ship
construction puzzle, 18th century toys and children attire and clothing
of the ordinary seaman and captain.
Staff dressed in 18th
century maritime attire help young visitors with the cooper's bucket
puzzle and the ship puzzle.
A table with examples of 18th century foods and cutlery is fascinating
to all ages. Tea bricks, hard tack and tobacco twist are readily
available for all to handle.
