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.

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.

The exhibition is FREE to enter.
