The Diving Museum

About

The Diving Museum covers all aspects of diving from underwater sports and spear fishing to military, commercial and scientific research diving. We also have an outdoor display of large exhibits including world record-breaking diving chambers and bells and even the world’s first ‘transfer-under-pressure” diving bell. We have a special display dedicated to Gosport’s important role in diving research. For the kids there are trails and quizzes, ‘dress the diver’, ‘sink the penny diver’, colouring-in and lots more!

The Diving Museum is housed in a Napoleonic Battery built in 1860. The building is itself an attraction with a fascinating history leading from Victorian times through two world wars and as a nuclear shelter in the cold war.
