Interesting way to spend a hour or so. Good walking round the ship, children enjoyed dressing up and looking for the mice. The information boards are very interesting and it’s amazing that ships managed to sail around the world without all the modern technology.

Some of the ship is but there are steps down to the lower and upper desks which you wouldn't not be able to get the pushchair up and down so you might struggle to see much. Hope this helps
