Future Developments


"By 2020 we are committed to delivering a world class Royal Marines Museum which appropriately recognises the heroism and sacrifice of this elite service." Professor Dominic Tweddle, Director General, National Museum of the Royal Navy.



Transforming Naval Heritage

The stories of the Royal Navy and the Royal Marines are the history of our nation.

The SeaMore project will create the country's newest national collection at the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Your access to the Royal Marines heritage will be transformed as key historic artefacts from five museums across the National Museum will be brought together in an exciting, innovative Centre for Discovery.

As a key part of the project the Royal Marines Museum will be relocated to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, broadening the massive appeal of the Royal Marines story to visitors at the heart of naval heritage.
