This interactive exhibition titled - Bones of Oak & Iron - Beneath Victory's Skin - explores how HMS Victory was originally built in 1759, how she was preserved and cared for in war and peace and the restoration process that will cover the next ten years.
The exhibition is FREE to enter. However, it is advised that to get the most from a visit a site ticket must be purchased from the Visitor Centre on arrival to visit the ship herself, the magnificent Trafalgar Sail, the Nelson and Sailing Navy galleries in the NMRN and the rest of the attractions at the Historic Dockyard to put the story into the wider naval historical context.
Visitors are able to explore through computer generations, footage, display panels, 'did you know' facts and various tactile displays, the way that this remarkable 250-year-old ship is looked after to safeguard her for future generations. They can discover the amazing story of her survival and the hard work that ensures this incredible piece of living history makes it through the next quarter of a millennium.
