This gallery has recently undergone a series of improvements including re-hanging and display of objects and artworks. Come and explore this re-designed gallery with new selfie spots and an interactive quiz on the exciting re-telling of the Dockyard story.

The 19th and 20th century represented times of great change at Chatham Dockyard, the Steam, Steel and Submarines gallery is used to explore this defining period of power, strength and adaption to new technology.

Chatham Dockyard, along with the Chatham Port Division of the Royal Navy played a central role in many of the 19th and 20th centuries major conflicts, without their contribution would Britain have been able to maintain such important global influence?
