Latest repair projects aboard HMS Victory open to public viewing

Get under the skin of HMS Victory in the latest National Museum of the Royal Navy visitor experience Victory Live: The Big Repair. Learn about the once-in-a-lifetime project to fight the impact of moisture, fungus and pests that threaten her; meet the incredible teams fighting to protect her and see her as never before by climbing aboard the scaffold that encases her in this unique and groundbreaking experience. 

The National Museum of the Royal Navy is the proud custodian of HMS Victory, the world’s oldest commissioned ship and flagship of the Royal Navy. Built over 250 years ago, she was expected to operate for only nine years without major repair. She has undergone multiple repairs over her life and now we embark on the latest. 

As the museum undertakes this decade-long process they are excited to share Victory Live: The Big Repair with visitors, allowing access to the scaffold surrounding the ship, getting up close to painstaking work taking place to preserve her and meeting the incredible teams of craftsmen, conservators, engineers and shipwrights who seek to protect her for the next 50 years.
