Hear my story

HMS - Hear My Story is a major exhibition situated in the Babcock Galleries at the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

It tells the undiscovered stories from the ordinary men, women, and ships which have made the Navy‘s amazing history over the last 100 years, the century of greatest change.

HMS brings you closer than ever before to the real Royal Navy as their heritage is brought together for the first time for this major exhibition. Through cutting edge interpretation see and hear the stories of the Royal Navy through war and peace; from the storms of the Arctic to the heat of Afghanistan.

Get immersed with technology how to disguise your ship, hunt a submarine, or send messages in code. Meet the veterans who can tell you first hand their stories of living and fighting at sea.

Your story matters

Hear My Story is also an exhibition where your story matters. Take part, share precious personal memories about yourself or your family, add these stories to history, and join the debate on what the future may hold.
