Image of HMS Hear My Story Gallery - National Museum of the Royal Navy


The National Museum of the Royal Navy tells the 800 year story of the Royal Navy across its galleries with an abundance of atmosphere, step back in time
for your function, as our galleries provide a unique venue for corporate hospitality.
Where else can you see an Enigma Machine, Nelson’s chair and table from the Great Cabin of HMS Victory, the famous Wyllie Panorama of the Battle of Trafalgar or an Exocet missile?

Let your guests marvel at the exhibits on display, from the figureheads and the barge that transported Nelson’s body along the Thames for his funeral in St Paul’s Cathedral, which is on display in the Victory Gallery, to the furniture from HMS Victory’s Great Cabin, on which the strategy for battle of Trafalgar was formed in the Nelson Gallery, to the silver from the Royal Yacht Victoria and Albert in the Princess
Royal Gallery.

Whether it is for a daytime function, as you seek to release the potential of your delegates by removing
them from the confines of the office and transporting them to the undisturbed setting of the National Museum of the Royal Navy, or a more relaxed evening affair, when we invite you to come dine with us, surrounded by years of Naval tradition and history.

We can offer you the ideal setting for a truly memorable experience. The Galleries have stunning views of HMS Victory and make an ideal setting for your ‘out of office experience’. Should you wish to get a real feel of history then make the National Museum of the Royal Navy your first choice.

For every booking you will have your own dedicated liaison at the National Museum, who will be on hand to facilitate the smooth running of your event, ensuring that all you have to do as the client is to entertain your guests. If these aren’t enough reasons to hire the Museum, why not consider having a behind the scenes tour with one of our experts, a backstage tour of the archives and stores, a guided tour of HMS Victory, or even adding the flair of the Fort Cumberland Guard to your event.
