How to launch a shipwreck

17 July 2006 by Sam

The Shipwrecked exhibition was launched in style at the weekend with a special opening event on Saturday evening. Special guests at the launch were the members of the Shipwrecked club.

Over the last 6 months the club members, all aged between 4 and 10, have thoroughly tested some of the key elements of the exhibition. The good news is that they were all impressed with the results of their hard work.

You can see one of the evening’s activities below. The events programme will continue throughout the exhibition, with lots of similar survival-themed activities for visitors to try.
