Pupils are encouraged to learn about the history of The Tall Ship by uncovering first hand evidence at their fingertips. During the guided tour, pupils trace the history of the Glenlee, and the stories of those who lived and worked aboard her. Investigate the overcrowded living quarters, delve below decks into the cargo hold, explore the engine room and take the helm as pupils discover what life was like at sea on a late Victorian sailing ship.
