From headline-stealing conservation projects to save key ships, boats, aircaft and artefacts to blockbuster exhibitions and landmark donations, the National Museum of the Royal Navy has made a huge impact on naval heritage in a very short time.
It is one of the UK’s youngest museums and also one of the most ambitious.
Portsmouth plays a significant part in this process. The museum has its headquarters in Portsmouth, in the historic dockyard; its flagship HMS Victory dominates the visitor offer in the city and the skills honed here are used nationally across the museum’s other sites.
As the National Museum celebrates the 10th anniversary of being based in the city, it has teamed up with The News to produce an 8-page supplement that looks back at milestones in that decade and also looks ahead to future projects, from the conservation of Victory to the creation of a new Royal Marines Museum.
