Andrew Baines has been appointed by the National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) as the new curator for HMS Victory, and will lead on the conservation, restoration and interpretation of the ship.

Working as part of the Curatorial Team at the NMRN, Andrew will be the principal advisor on matters relating to the history, structure, general appearance and public presentation of HMS Victory.

He is already a familiar face within Portsmouth Historic Dockyard having worked on board HMS Warrior for the past 12 years, of which he has been the Archivist and Historian for 8 years. He recently managed the restoration of the ship’s sick berth which saw him appearing on BBC National Treasures Live, alongside Dan Snow whom he was also interviewed by on the highly successful BBC Empire of the Seas series.

Currently completing an MA in Naval History from the University of Exeter, Andrew can also boast an MSc degree in Maritime Conservation Science and BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying from the University of Portsmouth. During his MSc he also undertook a work placement with the conservation team at the Mary Rose Trust.
