    It is a copy of the Galleon with which, in the second half of the 16th century, Sir. Francis Drake made a circumnavigation of the globe. It is an interesting visit especially for those traveling with kids. Life on board is well rebuilt and you can barely imagine how more than 70 men were able to live in spaces so tight for so long.

    A real pirate adventure my 3 year old son loved it as did my older girls. Anyone with mobility issues would struggle though. It is an actual ship.  more »

  • A unique museum. It is a beautiful ship with so much history. This museum is in the boat. Gets very cramped as it consists of narrow corridors. Quite pricy also. Good to do once. As far as I'm aware not much has changed inside for the last three decades. Not a bad museum to visit though.
  • Slightly overpriced. Only took us 20 minutes to go around. Not very big nor hugely informative but as the rating states OK.
  • Fantastic replica of the Hind. Good children's adventure too with a stamp hunt and chance too dress as pirates.
  • "GOLDEN HIND MUSEUM"..... So you think that being a 'pirate' on the romantic high seas of long ago would have suited you.....Well, take a look at this replica of " GOLDEN HIND" and imagine sailing her across an ocean, with no 'modern communications' to support your long, long journey, whilst 'swigging rum', eating 'salted dried leather beef'.....This 'GOLDEN HIND" is not as impressive as "HMS VICTORY" of "NELSONS" era, (should you ever be lucky enough to walk the decking of this grand national monument as I have done), but the "GOLDEN HIND" of 'BRIXHAM HARBOUR' is still worth a visit......Stand in the 'stocks' for another 'unique' photograph of your visit to 'DEVON'....."THE GOLDEN HIND"......'THE LEGEND".....
  • Great experience!! It brings the era to life. The staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. You leave marvelling at the courage and endurance of the men on board. To think that they went round the world in a tub like that!!
