Lanterns and Lights

From beautifully lit vessels to merry Make and Takes and lantern trails, Christmas at the Museum takes on the theme of Lanterns & Lights with a magical nautical twist.

Magical Make & Take

Running everyday, 12.30pm – 3.30pm

Get Christmas crafting with our Make and Take sessions. On the run-up to Christmas create sea themed decorations to hang in your home. After Christmas we’ll be making wishing wands and celebration party poppers to help us start the new year with a bang.

Museum lantern trail

Dotted throughout the Museum are hidden lanterns – will you find them all?
