About Us


The Royal Marines Museum is at the heart of Royal Marine history. Located in the Officers' Mess of the former Royal Marines Barracks in Southsea, Portsmouth, the Museum explores the fascinating history of the Royal Marines from their start in 1664 as Sea Soldiers through to current day operations around the world.

The Museum tells the stories of the Royal Marines past and present with a vast collection of objects, paintings and archive documents.

The collection contains over a million photographs, a million documents and 30,000 objects, which all help us to preserve the history of the Marines.
