Golden Hind Museum Ship
Explore above and below the five decks of this museum ship in Brixham
The Golden Hind Museum Ship is a full-size replica of Sir Francis Drakes iconic ship from the age of exploration. Go aboard and explore the five decks of this famous galleon, a feature of Brixham harbour for over fifty years.
The Ship strikes a great balance between living history, learning, and FUN! For the children, it’s an exciting ‘Pirate Ship’ to explore and for adults an opportunity to learn about Drake’s momentous Tudor circumnavigation.
Explore the Ship that was home to Drake and his crew of seventy men. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of life aboard a Tudor ship. Feel the romance of the seas in the great age of sail. The Ship rises and falls with the tide up to two metres.
See the Captain and Officers’ cabin, how the crew and prisoners slept below decks, the weapons, tools, cannons, artefacts from the age of discovery, the ropes hauled by the sailors, the creak of the timbers, the voices of the crew, treasure, pirates and much more….
