Capital projects

Our mission takes many forms, from innovative storytelling, to incredible feats of preservation, or unearthing new and exciting discoveries that expand our understanding of naval and maritime history. Capital projects are where all these come together.

The National Museum of the Royal Navy defines a capital project as a long-term project that expands and improves our sites, enabling us to deliver National Museum of the Royal Navy 2035: the long view and helps realise our ambition of being the world’s most inspiring naval museum.  

Our role is to make sure that the funding is in place so that we fulfil our role as a modern, global leader in heritage management.
