The Figureheads

We are conserving 14 Royal Naval ship's figureheads to display in The Box when it opens in 2020.


Figureheads visual for The Box, PlymouthThe figureheads are coming to us on loan from the National Museum of the Royal Navy and will be displayed in our foyer.

Before they can go on display to the public they need to undergo analysis and restoration. This ambitious project is enabling us to work with a wide range of specialist contractors and conservation specialists.

None of this would be possible without the support of our funders, particularly Interreg through the MMIAH (Maritime, Military and Industrial Atlantic Heritage) project.
