The museum houses a collection of paintings of naval heroes, battles and battleships, marine mascots and nearly 8,000 medals including ten Victoria Crosses. There are also personal stories, such as that of Hannah Snell, who ran away to sea in 1745, joined the Marines as a man, was wounded and received her pension as a woman.
"The museum is fantastic, a great collection and fitting for the amazing service and sacrifice that Royal marines make."Becky, Emsworth
