How did sailors find their way across the high seas before modern technology?

Join scientists from Armagh Planetarium and Observatory to find out. 

This fascinating talk compliments the Museum’s exhibition, Landings: Conquest and Commerce, featuring the stunning handcrafted models of HMY Mary and HMY Henrietta, which brought King William III to Carrickfergus in 1690. 

The sessions will include telescopes for handling and refreshments.
