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 and the website of the Royal Naval Museum at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

I liked very much the fine collection of figure heads in the museum. I took some pictures of them. If you click on a photo you will get that photo in high resolution.
