Free entry to this museum, with a lot of great artifacts, photos art and videos. We learned a lot about New Zealand's Naval history.

As my husband is in the RNZN I think this is a great place for visitors to go, to see how Navy life was a long time ago. It is free, and there is a super cafe' attached with views over the harbour to Auckland city and the Eastern suburbs. North Head towers above, where one can walk to, via the beach when the tides out

This is a small but very well organized naval museum with some wonderful artifacts. The trip to Devonport was pleasant and this was a highlight!
