Russian Arctic Convoy Museum

Discover one of the most daring allied operations of WWII.

The Arctic Convoys were a monumental collaborative effort to provide aid to the Soviet Union to bolster its defences against the invading German forces. The supplies were delivered by merchant vessels, escorted by warships, and shielded by air cover. The route went through perilous Arctic waters, and the ships sailed under the constant threat of air, surface vessel, and u-boat attacks.

Our museum has a large collection of artefacts and memorabilia, including: ships’ instruments, uniforms, photographs, written accounts, ships’ logs, medals, toys, models, and much more.

      Apologies Catherine, I missed this message. I think it is always best to contact the museum directly at this time as opening times can change. I hope you had a lovely visit to the area.
