Have your say

Learn to think like a solider or come face-to-face with pirates at the Royal Marines Museum this summer.

Each week the museum, in Eastney, is putting on a number of activities to keep families entertained throughout the summer holidays.

On Mondays, visitors can take part in Commando Operations, where you can smuggle a VIP into British hands or capture the flag.

Back by popular demand, children can test themselves against the museum’s Commando Fit assault course on Tuesdays.

Mid-week on Wednesdays, you can see if you have what it takes to respond to emergencies all over the world.

At 11am a major earthquake and winter is on its way and you have to get the right supplies to local villages, while at 2pm you have to find a crash site and treat the casualties.

Thursdays are for the Field Gun Challenge, where, just like the old Royal Tournament, you can try your hand at a miniature version of the command field gun challenge.

Royal Marines have faced pirates for hundreds of years, and that’s why on Fridays children can take part in anti-piracy operations.
