We have always been a little bit fascinated with transport, the different ways we travel, the speed at which we can move now and how technology is advancing those modes of transport every day. From toddlers who beg to be taken on a train ride to the elderly gentlemen collecting facts about their favourite air crafts, there are people all around the world who have a keen interest in power-driven vehicles, the way they work and the places they go.
Do you remember the first time you got on an aeroplane or a train? Do you remember how exciting that was? Well here are some more travel-related fun things to do wherever you are in the world.
National Maritime Museum
Located in Cornwall, this museum was created in 1992 and has been running events and attractions since then, with a vast range of boats and maritime-related artifacts adults and children alike enjoy their visits here every year. Also being in Cornwall on the coast itself this museum allows you to view the sea yourself!
