Exhibition events:

Museums and Galleries Month May 2007

Every Wednesday during May visitors to the 'Task Force South' exhibition attended free gallery talks by Veterans of the conflict. These popular talks gave our visitors a real taste of life on board a Royal Navy warship in 1982 and many people came back every week to find out more!

Graham Muir explains his role in the RFA Fort Grange in 1982

The Royal Naval Museum plans to hold regular gallery talks giving you the chance to explore history with the people who lived through it. If you would like to come along then keep an eye on our website or contact us for more information.
