In today’s global world you may have drunk coffee from Brazil or a smoothie containing frozen fruit from China. You could be wearing clothes made in India, watching a TV made in Japan while sitting on a sofa containing wood from Argentina on a laminate floor manufactured in Sweden.
All of this has been made possible by a rectangular steel box - the humble shipping container.
You can literally ‘step inside the box’ to enjoy the Maritime Museum's first-ever outdoor exhibition as you explore six colourful containers scattered around the museum like giant Lego pieces.
Each container covers one part of our six part exhibition.
