The National Museum of the Royal New Zealand Navy is the guardian of the Royal New Zealand Navy’s memory. Preserving the Navy’s physical, social and cultural heritage, telling its story and educating New Zealanders both young and old about the role the Navy has played in the development of New Zealand is a crucial responsibility and one that the Navy Museum takes great pride in. The Museum sits at the end of King Edward Parade in Devonport directly below North Head. We're a short ferry ride from Auckland CBD or a bus ride from Takapuna. There's an onsite cafe and playground. A great day out for all ages. The Museum is open 7 days a week 10am - 5pm - free admission.
