Historic Location

Venue Hire

Planning an event? The Maritime Museum is a fantastic historic backdrop for that occasion. It’s an ideal location venue for wedding ceremonies, lectures, concerts, conferences and meetings.

It’s a truly unique venue, with an obviously nautical theme. We’ve been hosting events since we reopened and have received nothing but thanks and praise.

A fully restored nineteenth century building.

Public location for civil ceremonies.

Central location close to Upper Georges Street.

Close to local hotels, yacht clubs.

Fabulous photo location.

PA and audio system available.
