‘Ship Models - A History of Shipping in Miniature’ explores the history of ship models and the evolution in shipbuilding design.

This fascinating exhibition features a diverse collection of ship models built by professional shipyard modellers and amateur model makers as well as beautiful glass ships in bottles, an art form which became popular at the end of the last century.

The exhibition illustrates how, although not always built to scale, ship models were important to different cultures across the world in influencing ship design for travel and trade and developing an increased capability in warfare.
