    • Opening in February 2017 within Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the exhibition charts the history of women and the Royal Navy from the age of sail to the present day. Women have played an important role throughout naval history but their contribution was rarely recorded and little celebrated. This exhibition, which draws on the collections of the National Museum of the Navy together with loans from other museums and private individuals, brings together many surprising and lesser-known stories of naval women stretching back centuries.
