Warfare in News


Posted on Tuesday 22nd November

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded a grant of just over £1.4m to the National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard to create new exhibitions on the Navy in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

The grant will help to uncover the largely untold story of the Royal Navy since 1900. The eighteenth century Storehouse 10, built in 1776, is one of the finest Georgian storehouses in the UK and will be completely restored providing new exhibition spaces for the museum’s vast collections. Storehouse 10 will be connected to Storehouse 11 enabling the museum to showcase four centuries of our important naval history properly for the first time.

State-of-the-art interactive displays and exhibitions will help bring the collections alive and into the twenty-first century for everyone, especially young people, to learn from and enjoy.
