National Museum of the Royal Navy

The Royal Navy has helped to shape the world. It made Britain a dominant sea power, protected its trade in troubled times and defended Britain from invasion or carried the attack overseas. The Royal Navy has touched the lives of millions of people worldwide, affected servicemen and women and the families of those who built, serviced and supplied its ships and influenced the lives of communities overseas.

The museum’s major gallery Hear My Story opened in 2014 and tells the undiscovered stories from the ordinary men and women of the ships which have shaped the Navy’s amazing history over the last 100 years, the century of greatest change. Hear My Story brings you closer than ever before to the real Royal Navy; cutting edge interpretation lets you see and hear the stories of the Navy in war and during peacetime.

The Sailing Gallery shows the realities of fighting at sea in the age of sail, the Nelson Gallery examines Nelson’s colourful, crowded and short life and the Sir Donald Gosling Victory Gallery explores the history of Britain’s most famous warship from the laying of her keel to her significant battles. Visitors can walk through the multi-media show the ‘Trafalgar Experience’, meeting Nelson and his great foe Napoleon, feeling the blast on the main gun deck during the Battle.

As HMS Victory undergoes her most extensive refit since Trafalgar, the exhibitions will share the forensic analysis changing our understanding of Victory’s past and the scientific investigations showing new ways of securing her future.
