Current Exhibition: Sons of Mars

Our current exhibition “The Sons of The Mars ” explores the lives of the boys and men on board the Training Ship Mars during its time moored in the River Tay.

With the help of St Andrews University MLitt Students, and local historian and musician Gordon Douglas, the story of the Mars is really brought to life in our on board exhibition. From discipline, daily routines, and education to leisure come and explore what life was like on TS Mars between 1869 and 1929 and let us know of any links your family has to the training ship!

We also have a limited number of signed copies of Gordon Douglas’ books “We’ll Send Ye Tae the Mars” and “Sons of the Mars” plus a CD of “Songs From The Mars” for sale throughout the duration of the Sons of Mars exhibition.

Sons of Mars will run from 17th July until November 2019.
