A new Royal Marines Museum
The exciting plans for the museum's future in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
By opening the new museum in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, which brings in almost 1 million visitors per year, the new Royal Marines Museum will open up the story of the Corps to a much wider audience.
The new museum will occupy an impressive Georgian Boathouse building which will be completely refurbished to include modern, dynamic galleris and interactive displays.
The museum will present the story of the Corps, its contribution to the nation and how over 350 years of history has led to what it is today. Personal stories of duty, loyalty and sacrifice will bring visitors closer to the unique operations and ethos of the Royal Marines and for the first time their remarkable story will be told in a way appropriate to its national scale and significance. A much wider audience will experience this story, set alongside and in the context of the Royal Navy.
