Living History Re-enactment Weekend

The Scottish Maritime Museum on Irvine Harbourside is planning a very different and exciting day out for families looking for fun during the school holidays.

A spectacular re-enactment group will lead a weekend of fun and living history on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 July in the Museum Courtyard.

Entry to the re-enactment event within the Linthouse Courtyard is FREE.

The re-enactment group will take everyone on a journey back in time to the mid-18th century where they’ll thrill as they watch a highly charged scene between smugglers and Royal Navy.

As the scene unfolds, visitors will see some shady looking characters attempt to smuggle goods past a Royal Navy revenue post. Of course, these are hapless smugglers and thing’s don’t go quite as planned….

On both Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 July, visitors will also enjoy a Show and Tell display of weaponry and British uniforms of the day.

The Show and Tell takes place at 12noon each day and the re-enactment stirs to life at 3pm each day.

In between the Show and Tell and re-enactment, visitors can enjoy a visit to the Museum where, as usual, up to three children go free with each paid adult admission.
