Battle of Jutland Exhibition ‘36 HOURS: JUTLAND 1916, THE BATTLE THAT WON THE WAR’

 
On 19th May 2016, in the centenary year, The National Museum of the Royal Navy will open a major exhibition to commemorate the largest naval battle in history, the Battle of Jutland.
 
‘36 Hours: Jutland 1916, The Battle That Won The War’ will be the most comprehensive exhibition ever staged on the subject, and will highlight the essential role of the British Royal Navy in winning the First World War.
 
Through never-before-seen displays and immersive galleries the exhibition will challenge the belief that the Battle of Jutland was a German victory. The National Museum of the Royal Navy will present the battle as a British victory, both tactically and strategically.

HMS Victory 


HMS Victory is currently undergoing the biggest restoration programme in her history. The Victory conservation project is unique, large and complex. It requires specialist skills and knowledge, a great deal of time, and a great deal of research in order to develop solutions to the challenges the project presents. 
 
Our Sparring with Time exhibition in the National Museum of the Royal Navy, across from HMS Victory, gives a fascinating insight into our plans for the ship and explains how our current work is just another phase in her incredible history. 
 
We are working with guidance from the UK’s Advisory Committee on National Historic Ships on this, the largest ever project on Victory and are determined to keep the ship open to visitors so you can watch this amazing story of restoration in action.

HMS M.33

 
HMS M.33 is a unique survivor. Launched in May 1915 this vessel is the sole remaining British veteran of that year’s bloody Gallipoli Campaign, and also of the Russian Civil War which followed. Only three British warships from the First World War still exist and HMS M.33 is the only one open to the public.
 
In spring 2015, 306 generous supporters of our HMS M33 Crowdfunding Campaign contributed £9,236 towards the restoration of the vessel, which you can now visit at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

HMS Caroline

 
HMS Caroline is one of the most important ships of the last century. She is the last survivor of the hugely significant Battle of Jutland and she is the longest serving ship in the Royal Navy, after Nelson’s famous HMS Victory.
 
After the Battle of Jutland, HMS Caroline continued to be an integral part of the Royal Navy for almost another 100 years. She toured the world, acting as a British presence from Sri Lanka to the Seychelles. She played a vital part in ensuring that food and other supplies reached Britain in the Second World War. 
 
The NMRN and the Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment in Northern Ireland have worked as partners to restore and interpret HMS Caroline, a lone survivor and living legend. With the help of a grant of £11.5m from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), the ship will be open to all for the first time in 2016. She will also play a key part in the national Jutland commemorations in 2016. Work continues onboard to restore this magnificent lady to her 1916 appearance when she fought at the Battle of Jutland.
