Since we re-opened in August 2020, we have welcomed thousands of faces, new and old, back to our museums to enjoy some of the incredible ships and collections we have on offer. It was especially heart-warming to see so many people enjoying themselves over the last two weeks and making the most of half term.

Unfortunately, following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Saturday, 31 October we are now required to close our museums in line with public health guidance. We can therefore confirm that all The National Museum of the Royal Navy sites including Fleet Air Arm Museum will be temporarily closed from Thursday 4 November until Wednesday 2 December 2020.

However, whilst we are closed, you will still be able to purchase a ticket without booking a day/time to visit. Your ticket will not be activated until it is redeemed upon entry to the museum. We are dependent on the money we generate to care for our aircraft and collections, so if you wanted to buy now to support us during this challenging time or to buy a ticket as a present to be redeemed at a later date, it would be a wonderful way of showing your continued support. However, if you would like to continue offering your support, please visit our online donation platform.

For the time being we have taken the daily booking slots offline, however, when we know it is safe to reopen and in line with government guidance these will go back online. We will update our social media channels to share details of this so make sure you are following us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.

For those with an unredeemed ticket you can keep this and redeem it on your first visit to the site after reopening, and we will be adding a 28 day ticket extension to those with valid 12 month tickets – more details about this can be found in our FAQs

We understand that this is a difficult and frustrating time for all, and we will be providing regular updates over the next few weeks. We recommend checking our website and social channels, as well as our FAQs page as hopefully they will answer many of your questions. However, if you still want to get in touch, our staff will be on reduced hours and so emailing us at will be the best way to get in touch.

Please sign up to our emails and check our social media channels so we can keep you up to date with what’s going on and our future reopening dates. We will continue to follow guidance from the government, the World Health Organisation and Public Health England on next steps.
