RLNI Heritage Trust Lifeboat Museum

The historic Dockyard is home to the largest collection of RLNI lifeboats in the country . They range from a 1897 pulling and sailing lifeboat right up to modern Arun class and Blue Peter inflatable inshore boats. Chatham is home to most of the preserved historic lifeboats that have been preserved by the RNLI

There are numerous archive film and audio clips as well as some interactive displays to help you explore how lifeboats have changed during the last century.
