An experience like no other

As the most original old ship in the world, HMS Unicorn offers a unique and engaging experience for learners of all ages.

Our schools programme has been designed to support the Curriculum for Excellence and cross-curricular learning. Pupils and educational staff will get the opportunity to immerse themselves in 200 years of history and discover life on board Scotland’s oldest ship.

From ship design to life at sea, our range of tours and interactive workshops will encourage pupils to explore their heritage, think critically and ask questions.

Our Learning Guide provides further information about our schools programme and details of our tours and workshops.
