The Navy Museum photographic collection consists of truly unique and outstanding images depicting the history of the Royal New Zealand Navy dating from as early as the late 19th century.  This collection offers a look into some candid and poignant episodes in our history.  These images capture authentic moments in our sailors' lives.

This extremely important historical collection has been assembled from a variety of sources including veterans and their families, WW2 photographs from the British Admiralty, official photographers commissioned by the Navy, and from our current sailors.  The museum is the custodian of the images taken by the photographer for the Navy since 1958.

The subject matter is broad and encompasses RNZN ships, parades and ceremonies, official class and group photographs, historical photographs, Pacific Island ship tours of the 1950s and 1960s and Antarctic exploration.

The Museum also possesses a number of personal photograph albums, which provide insight into life in the Navy over the decades.
