The Museum houses memorabilia from the old Royal Navy shore establishment HMS Ganges, including the ship’s figurehead, honours board and clocks. The Museum is also home to a very large collection of photographs, artefacts and original documents relating to life at Shotley, which are of value to both casual visitors and researchers alike.
In addition a small number of documents relating to old ‘Ganges’ when afloat are now becoming available to the Museum.
The original HMS Ganges figurehead (built Bombay 1821) now restored to its full glory.
