Our doors are open and we're excited to welcome you to the museum.

There is something for everyone! Come into the museum and experience our range of exhibitions for all-ages or take a curator-led online exhibition tour. Have your interest sparked by a virtual talk, digital event or film or why not immerse yourself in navy life by climbing aboard or taking a 360-degree virtual tour of a vessel?  You can also explore our vast digital collections or experience them in person in our galleries, read our blog, play a game or get crafty with ocean-themed kids activities, visit our online library for some family or maritime research, read a digital publication, bring the kids in for a visit over the school holidays or make learning from home fun with our range of specially created educational resources for parents, teachers and students, and more! (You can even learn how to be a pirate)!
