Christmas Shopping at the Museum

Whether your Christmas shopping is in full swing, or even if you’re just starting out, now is a great time to visit our Museum Shop. We have a great range of gifts for all ages and budgets, and what’s more if you’re too far away or prefer to avoid the crowds, we have an online shop at http://www.rnmuseumshop.co.uk/index.html

We have a beautiful image of HMS Victory in the snow, taken during the heavy January snow falls earlier this year, available as a Christmas card in packs of 10. But if you fancy recreating the scene yourself, we do sell HMS Victory snow globes too! And why not open your own cards in style, with a letter opener with a difference – it’s a mini sword!

For stocking fillers, how about a chocolate medallion, or some of HMS Victory’s “Ship’s Rats” which are just like sugar mice. Lapel badges are available in a choice of 9 designs including a white ensign and an RN crown, and there are plenty of other small items to choose from throughout the shop, such as keyrings and pencils, to squeeze into that last little space in the stocking!

To toast the season, we have wine and rum available – you can even get your hands on a special Naval Toasts Tankard to drink from, engraved with well known naval toasts.

You can call the family for dinner with our Ship’s Bell (or call the crew for some assistance peeling the spuds!)

After dinner, games are a great opportunity to get the whole family playing together. The Best of British game, which you may have seen advertised on TV recently,  is a question based board game, centred around the quirky British sense of humour, and themed around modern everyday British life.

For the crafty types in the family, there are Airfix and Revell model making kits to keep them busy, and puzzles and games for the inquisitive mind.

Plus all the usual Books, DVD’s, Artwork, Figures and much more.

And after all that Christmas shopping, if you want to get organised for next year, 2011 diaries are in the shop now.
