The National Museum of the Royal New Zealand Navy is the guardian of the Royal New Zealand Navy’s memory. Preserving the Navy’s physical, social and cultural heritage, telling its story and educating New Zealanders both young and old about the role the Navy has played in the development of New Zealand is a crucial responsibility and one that the Navy Museum takes great pride in.

The Navy Museum’s One Page Strategic Plan is detailed in the following link:
The National Museum of the Royal New Zealand Navy aspires to be a Museum of the Future.
Our Museum of the future will be represented onsite, offsite and online. We will move from being keepers to sharers. We will focus on relevance and meaningfulness and invite our visitor to actively participate with us in the Museum. The Navy Museum will be a platform for ideas, a civic place and forum for conversation, collaboration and connection.
Most importantly we will develop our authority and reputation as the key foundation on which the success of our institution will be built.
The characteristics of our future are detailed in the following diagram. Click here.
