Don't just walk around looking, they have reading boards all around, read from start to finish all the history that made the dockyard what it is today.

Lovely informative museum on history of nelson and the times. Nice and cool when hot outside, well worth a visit.

Although it is very small there are some interesting exhibits and artifacts from the old dockyard. Like most of the buildings in the dockyard the museum was formally used by the sailors of that era, so has that feel about it. Although not totally original,...More

I throughly enjoyed the displays and narratives in this cute little museum. They were both informative and interesting. It certainly is well worth a visit during your tour of the local area. I recommend visiting this museum during a visit to the dockyard.

Interesting history of the dockyard during this period of time, times were very difficult for people, who worked so hard in the heat and on little rations. Informative.

As part of the nelson dockyards area it’s well worth a visit but it’s a bit all over the place which in a way is part of its attraction, good artefacts of Nelson and Royal Navy. Allow an hour of your visit to see everything

I reviewed this along side Nelson's dockyard - it is interesting but needs some revamping. It looked very tired and the placement of artifacts higgeldy piggedly and not very well thought out. Having said that, it is still worth a visit.

His is a great little museum within the Nelson Dockyard area. You are free to wander around at your leisure and spend as much or as little time looking at and reading about the artifacts as you might wish.

Stopped here as part of an island tour and this is part of Nelson Dockyard. I wouldn't have a special trip for the museum but it's worth a visit as part of the dockyard.
