We just went to the museum today, and what a great experience it was. My husband remembers seeing the ship coming ‘home’ on TV in 1970 and has always wanted to go and neither of us were disappointed. Set up really well with lots of...More

Well without knowing your mother's age 🤔🙈, I would suggest if she is reasonably fit, ie could she touch her toes, she should be fine. Looks like one at a time, but it's in two stages. Up the rigging to a crows nest, then out onto the spar. So it might be doable. Good luck, have fun😂😂
