During the School holiday, our Learning Centre comes alive every Wednesday with free drop in Navy themed craft activities, perfect for fitting around a visit to HMS Victory or the new Mary Rose Museum. Highlights from 2013 include:


  • Treasure island and Pirate Encounters Activities
  • Creating oceans in bottles to take home
  • Trying out Morse code and semaphore
  • Our massive LEGO Shipbuilder’s event which saw 466 children and their adults build 184 ships in 4 hours. All were entered into a design competition for ships of the future, with the winners selected by the Commanding Officer of HMS Victory.
  • Creepy Crawly Encounters to meet the creatures that stow away and live on ships…

These are joined by our wonderful Arena Events such as Armed Forces Day and 2013s Navy Neverland, Peter Pan Themed Fun Day.


We also have dedicated free Under 5 sessions running throughout the year. The Cabin Club takes place on one Friday a month with free drop in sessions of soft play, water play, dressing up and age-appropriate arts and crafts in our Cabin Family Play Area, completed with plenty of toys, play ships, cuddly toys, books and puzzles. During August, Telescope Tales takes over with free drop in sessions of play and storytelling every Friday. Our water-play ships, HMS Puddle and HMS Splash are regular attendees for our summer activities, keeping everyone cool.


HMS Victory plays host to regular free family activities throughout the year with dressing up, object handling and re-enactment. A valid ticket for HMS Victory is required and can be purchased from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
