Details of how The National Museum of the Royal Navy is to invest almost £33million in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the wider city over the next two years were unveiled today.
Developing major new exhibitions and interpretation alongside finalising major museum projects are at the heart of the investment. It follows the news of a record breaking year for visitor numbers and economic impact figures that state that Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, which is managed by the National Museum, brings £110million p.a. for Portsmouth.
The plans were unveiled on the eve of a public consultation about the final resting place for the National Museum’s Landing Craft Tank LCT 7074 at the D-Day Story, Southsea. The £5million project secures the long term future of the sole surviving landing craft from D-Day.
