Help us develop this important new exhibition.

Bligh: Hero or Villian?

In winter 2019 the Museum will open a new exhibition, Bligh: Hero or Villain which explores the life of  William Bligh in a new light. We invite you and all the Australian National Maritime Museum Members to get involved and contribute to the museum’s ambition to develop and present this important exhibition.

A donation of $100 or more will make a very real contribution to this important presentation of a very fascinating individual - extraordinary navigator, sailor and governor. Donors to the Bligh Exhibition will benefit with behind the scenes activities and a deeper understanding in the development of such an exhibition.

To donate via our online form, simply select 'Bligh Exhibition Fund' from the drop down menu, or via one of the ways listed below (click to expand for more information).

You can donate by sending a cheque made out to the Australian National Maritime Foundation to:
