Community Projects & Roadshows

Here at the National Museum of the Royal Navy we recognise that learning doesn’t stop the day you leave the classroom. We also know that whatever your age learning needs to be fun and exciting! Our wide variety of community events, lectures and workshops run throughout the year and are for everyone, whether you are a regular visitor or making a special visit.

In addition to programmed activities, we take our artefacts and collections into the community giving people the opportunity to handle objects often over 100 years old. If you would like our Community Engagement Officer to come and visit your group please contact them on 02392 727595 or email It’s free of charge, though sometimes, depending on the distance, we may need to ask for a contribution towards travel expenses.
