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.

Throughout August, the Museum is hosting special visits from these highly skilled dogs with a unique chance to see them in action and find out more. 

Demonstrations will take place every 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd August. Sessions will take place each day at 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm.

Sessions are drop-in, no booking required, and will take place in the 4th floor Lecture Theatre at 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.
