Return of the detector dogs!



Event Banner Image

Detector dogs have been helping to safeguard our ports and airports for many years. Each dog works with a handler from Border Force to detect hidden objects including drugs, weapons and other smuggled goods.

During August the Maritime Museum is hosting four very special visits from these highly skilled dogs, for the first time since the pandemic, with a unique chance to see them in action and find out more. Demonstrations will take place every Thursday in August.

Sessions are drop in, no booking required, and will take place in the 4th floor Lecture Theatre in the Maritime Museum. All welcome. 

Find out more about the work of detector dogs and the Border Force in our Seized! gallery in the basement.
