We are still open online

While the Museum doors are closed during this pandemic our you can view our collection and the inspiring stories for free online. Why not check out our Art Collection, 3D Collections, our Collections Blog, or even take a Virtual Tour. Perhaps sit back and enjoy our Oral History clips of storms, stories and explosions.

With children out of school and perhaps underfoot while you’re trying to work from home, keeping them active and engaged is every parent’s priority right now. We have created these activities to help you out:

Linthouse Colouring Sheet

Cats Head Colouring Sheet

Rat Colouring Sheet

Elephant Colouring Sheet

Anchor Colouring Sheet

Spartan Puffer Colouring Sheet

Maritime Word Search

Code Breaker Quiz

Make Paper Boat Instructions

One of the most popular stories at Scottish Maritime Museum is The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch by David and Ronda Armitage. Our Learning and Access Assistant Elliot is going to read it to us from our special Lighthouse area in the Museum, watch it here.


Given the uncertainty we are all facing together, it is not possible to say when our museums will be able to reopen to visitors, but we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can. Have a go at some of these activities and let us know on social media by sending in your pictures and stories.
