The Royal Marines are without a museum, their story hidden from view. After being deemed no longer fit for purpose and with collections at risk, the old museum in Eastney closed in 2017.
Since then, the National Museum of the Royal Navy has been working towards creating a new Royal Marines Museum at the heart of the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, placing the singular history of the Corps in its rightful place within the wider story of the Royal Navy.
We need youR help
The current total cost estimate for the New Royal Marines Museum project is £10 million. The National Museum of the Royal Navy has earmarked £5 million from internal sources which means we have a further £5 million to raise; our £5 million mission.
Once requisite funding is secured we will proceed as quickly as possible and aim to be on site in 2021 with galleries opening to the public in early 2022.
