The Art of Ship Modelling


On display at the Queen Victoria Museum from November 2018 until January 2019. 

Ship models allow you to see the whole of what is usually a very large object.

As very few ships survive long-term service, these models, along with photographs of the ships in service, are now some of the main records of the ships.

Of the models on display here, the majority are professionally made company models, built for the companies that ran them to promote the ships.

On display in the Museum's Objects Gallery.
