Royal Australian Navy Heritage Centre

The Royal Australian Navy Heritage Centre (RAN) opened in 2005 in two renovated National Estate listed buildings: The Gun Mounting Workshop (1922) and the Boatshed (1890) as the setting to exhibit the Naval Heritage Collection. This nationally significant Collection holds the artefacts of Navy's history with many items on display having never been seen by the general public.

The RAN Heritage Centre exhibits over 3000 artefacts from the history of the Navy. Displays range from large weapon systems to sailor's personal items all representing the developments and events of more than 100 years of the Navy's history.

Visitors to the RAN Heritage Centre will be able to enjoy seeing, touching and listening to a range of displays that provide an experience of Navy.
