A 10 foot replica scale model of the Mayflower will be built by Capt. Ian Kirkwood with help from students at South Devon Marine Academy at Noss and local experts and volunteers.
The interior of the model will be exposed from stem to stern on one side to display the construction and interior, including Pilgrim and crew accommodation and other contents. A section will include model Pilgrim figures, hammocks, storage, stove etc. The model will be exhibited with display boards and descriptive interactive screens, in either the Visitor Centre or the new Museum extension.
We are grateful to a number of local, national and international sponsors and supporters of this project. A full list of Contributors to the Dartmouth Mayflower 400 project can be found here.
