Support us to tell the epic story of the Royal Navy

We have a vision to become the world’s most inspiring naval museum. 

We want to be a museum that engages our visitors with the rich history, ground breaking technologies, and role of the Royal Navy in shaping both our nation and the modern world. 

But we’re not just a collection of artefacts – rather we’re a place where the stories and lives of people are told. 

Donations from people like you mean we’re able to care, preserve and display our ships, planes, and submarines. Equally importantly, they also make it possible for us to bring our collections to life and in doing so share the inspirational work of our curators, conservators, scientists, and volunteers.

There are many ways you can become part of our ongoing story-telling. 

Delve deeper and discover how contributions, large or small, can make a lasting impact on our work.

Help fund the new Royal Marines Museum

The Royal Marines are the nation’s elite amphibious force who deploy around the globe, at sea and on land, in peace and in war. Their story is one that deserves to be told.

After almost a decade, The National Museum of the Royal Navy is tantalisingly close to creating a new Royal Marines Museum on the ground floor of a Re-imagined Boathouse 6. 

With your help we will create a place where the ethos, values, stories, objects, experiences and sacrifice of the Royal Marines is respected and shared.
