Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to this policy:
For visitor safety, when the temperature reaches 36 degree celsius the provider closes all vessels. If it looks like a it's going to be a hot day, come early and see the vessels first. If extreme wet weather hits, the vessels are also closed for visitor safety. There's still lots of amazing things to enjoy inside the museum though, so don't let rain stop you from visiting!
Walking clothes with sensible shoes are suggested, as the museum is spread out over a large indoor / outdoor space and our vessels have stairs and ladders that may be narrow or steep. Bring hats and sun protection to prevent sunburn. Backpacks, large bags and other items like strollers can be securely checked in with our front desk staff so you can climb on the vessels safely. Note: Prams and baby carriers are not permitted on board tall ships, warships and submarine.
