March - December, Ayrshire:

The Museum’s Boatshop on Irvine’s harbourside features exhibitions, ship models and a children’s activity area, as well as the Museum shop. At the Linthouse Engine Shop, built in 1872, you’ll find much of the Museum’s collection, including shipbuilding machinery and machine tools, smaller boats, canoes, lifeboats, and much more. The Museum’s floating boats are moored at its pontoons in the harbour. These include "Carola," a steam yacht, and "Garnock", a harbour tug. You can also visit the shipyard workers’ tenement flat, restored to its pre-1920s appearance.
