Figure heads of HMS Galliope, HMS Apollo, HMS Minerva

 

The Royal Naval Museum Portsmouth

   

The museum is devoted to the ships of the Royal Navy and the men and women who served in them. A special exhibition covers the Battle of Trafalgar. Many paintings and contemporary ship models of that time are shown.
The galleries devoted to the 20th century Navy focus on the changing face of the service from the launch of the Dreadnought to the Falklands War.

 
There is more information on the museum in the homepage of National Museum of the Royal Navy Portsmouth.

 
I liked very much the fine collection of figure heads in the museum. When we were there in December 2007 I took some pictures of them. Click images to enlarge.
