The Torpedo Bay Navy Museum is the official museum of the Royal New Zealand Navy. It opened in 2010, to replace an earlier naval museum. The museum is in Devonport, Auckland.
Take a journey through the memories, perils, loss, triumph and humour of the men and women who served – and continue to serve – this country on the ocean waves.
As an island nation, the sea has been crucial to New Zealand for travel, commerce, and defence. And the navy has taken a key role in this country’s security and development. Take time to enjoy this unique organisation, its fascinating stories, its courage, comradeship, and commitment as it serves New Zealand now and in the future.
