Very interesting, we spent about 2.5 hrs there, two adults two boys aged 11 & 8 years, but could have been longer.( It was just we were short of time) Shown round the ship and all questions answered by the very helpful staff. Lots of exibits to see & canon/ muskets fired. Good coffee and snacks in the cafe.

A wonderful place and knowledgeable people on hand to bring history to life. Great for all ages. The demonstrations were brilliant, myself and my boys enjoyed it. There is a play area for the kids to burn off some energy and a lovely cafe to warm up or cool down in.

A great day out with lots to do and a very interesting tour of the HMS Trincomalee, glad I didn't live in those days! The boys enjoyed the cannon firing and the cafe served some nice food and drinks. A little bit to keep everyone interested. Very friendly staff and a lovely shop and museum on the way out. The tickets last for the year so a win win situation.
