Meet the Riggers

Event date(s)

Join some of our talented rigging team for demonstrations of ropework and an insight into the tools and techniques they use on the rigging of HMS Victory and HMS Warrior.

You can meet the riggers on Monday 11th September, with sessions at 10:30am to 11:15am, 1:30pm to 2:15pm, and 3:30pm to 4:15pm. 

This is a free event but spaces are limited to 20 people per session so pre-booking is essential. Please assemble next to HMS Victory prior to your session time.

Heritage Open Days

The National Museum of the Royal Navy, alongside Portsmouth Historic Dockyard generally, is proud to be taking part in Heritage Open Days this year. With a theme of ‘Creativity Unwrapped’ we’ve got events sure to get you thinking about British naval history in a whole new way.  

Get inspired by crafty submariners, the unusual and thought-provoking items in our collection, and the work of the shipwrights combining traditional and modern techniques to work on the flagship of Horatio Nelson.
