The Warship and Marine Corps Museum (International) was established in 1960 with the aim to preserve Naval history.
You will be amazed at the oceans of information that is contained within this museum. There are more than 10,000 catalogued items in the Museums collection, from as far back as six centuries. Browse the 70 magnificent paintings, hand written letters, photographs, designs of flags and uniforms, and more than 40 model ships (mostly made by Ian Summers of St Marys Cranks and Tinkerers). Travel back in time to peruse the newspapers and prints, charts and maps. Compare the uniforms and flags, and marvel at the ship crests.
If there is anyone or any naval ship you are interested in, you can be guided to an extensive collection of photographs and signatures from international navies ready for research.
