Great day out for all the family. The audio guides are really good and it is a very interesting historical exhibit. You could easily spend a good couple of hours here. The staff are also excellent and very helpful.

Visited HMS Caroline with my husband and three children we spent an enjoyable 3 hours touring this boat as there was enough to keep everyone entertained. The earphones and interactive areas kept the children happily moving around the boat, well worth a visit.

Clearly all recently restored and some very good exhibits on board, you have access to pretty much the whole ship. Some ladders are very steep, but they are not long so nothing to fear on the heights front. If you are into war ships, naval...More

According to their website last entry is at 16:15. They refused us entrance at 16:05. According to staff member "website wasn't updated". Try to explain in to 4 and 6 year old boys who just ran from Titanic Experience to be in time. Disgrace

As we had had a long hot day at the other attractions we didn't go on board. A warship of 1st world war vintage should be quite interesting, a survivor of the Battle of Jutland.
