A very informative video about HMS Victory followed by an amazing collection of items relating to Nelson and the Battle of Trafalgar - and Nelson's funeral in London. This is one of the highlights of the Historic Dockyard and really shouldn't be missed.

The whole area is stunning Naval history at its finest. Buy the full navy pass before you go, well worth it.

Like someone else mentioned, a perfect second part (or first) part to the HMS Victory. I especially liked the information on the women at sea.

Very informative and interesting museum. A good collection of artifacts and art help to make this a good visit. If you visit the HMS Victory then you really should visit here as well.

It gives a good history of the battle of Trafalgar and a very good accompaniment to the tour of the HMS Victory.

Maybe not the most exciting thing on the historic docks sight but well worth a visit as it gives context to do much of the other stuff.

You must do The Victory and Mary Rose. HNS Warrior is also brilliant.
