A special event to complement the Maritime Museum’s current exhibition, Toys and Games.

Come and share your favourite family toys with us. What did you play with as a child? Do your children play with cherished family favourites? We invite you to bring in your favourite toys and games and recreate the painting, Marjory and Anne, which inspired the exhibition, in a professional photo shoot. Toys and participants of all ages welcome.

Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Admission is free

A Valentines murder mystery event and themed creative activities.

There’s Been A Murder!
A dead body lies in a Victorian street. There’s been a terrible accident. Or has there?

In the hand of the dearly deceased there is a note. It reads 'True love never dies!' A Valentine's message? Or a Memento Mori?

Take part in this thrilling murder mystery by forming a team, or by working alone, to search the museum and interrogate prime suspects. Who can solve the mystery in the quickest time? There’s a prize for the fastest thinking crime solvers!

This murder mystery is brought to you by award winning writer Kenny Boyle.


This is a ticketed event. Tickets cost £7 + booking fee per person.
