Your day out won’t be complete without a visit to the new 20th century galleries and the Trafalgar Experience at the National Museum of the Royal Navy, and an adventure-packed trip to Action Stations, where you can train like a commando! Add in a complimentary Harbour Tour to cruise around Portsmouth Harbour. Finally, opening August 2015, HMS M.33, the only surviving ship from the First World War’s Gallipoli campaign. Come along and take part in free family activities over the school holidays and make the most of our saver family tickets (including National Museum of the Royal Navy) available.
Your annual ALL-ATTRACTION TICKET includes entry to:
• HMS Warrior 1860: the world’s first iron-hulled, armoured warship launched in 1860 and never fired a shot in anger, yet changed naval warfare forever.
• HMS Victory: the world’s oldest commissioned warship, HMS Victory still has a full-time Royal Navy crew. Walk her decks and you’ll get a sense of the men who sailed with Nelson at Trafalgar.
• National Museum of the Royal Navy Portsmouth: Britain’s official museum dedicated to the men and women of the Royal Navy past and present.
• Action Stations: dozens of interactive adventures, including Britain’s tallest indoor climbing tower, giving a taste of life in today’s Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
• HMS Alliance at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum: assault your senses by walking on board HMS Alliance - it’s as if she is about to leave for sea. Take a peek through the working periscopes, and see, hear and even smell how life was lived under the sea.
• Explosion, The Museum of Naval Firepower: take the free waterbus over to the award-winning museum – home to a unique collection that includes torpedoes, modern missiles and even a nuclear bomb.
• Royal Marines Museum: explore the 350 year history of the Royal Marines – the Royal Navy’s amphibious elite fighting force.
• HMS M.33: discover the only surviving ship from the First World War’s Gallipoli campaign.
