The northern home of the National Museum of the Royal Navy. A fascinating journey through time, set in an authentically-created historic quayside of the 1800s. Experience Fighting Ships, a powerful insight into the tough lives of sailors from around the time of Admiral Lord Nelson and the Battle of Trafalgar. Learn how they were press ganged and see what life was like on board HMS Trincomalee, the oldest warship still afloat in the UK and the jewel in the historic quayside of Hartlepool.

A trip back in time, the whole area is in keeping with the days of the sailing ships. The staff were in period costume which added to the experience. One of the finest museums I have visited.

Living in County Durham I don't know how Iv never been here before. Such a perfect day out, we all loved every minute of it. We'll most certainly be making an annual visit of it. So much history and plenty to see.
