Five months ago, the Torpedo Bay Navy Museum and café opened its doors to the public and it now celebrates its 50, 000th visitor to the facilities.

“The response by the community to the museum and facilities has been fantastic,” said Commander David Wright, the Director of the Torpedo Bay Navy Museum. “All our expectations have been well exceeded.”

The 50,000th visitor to the museum and café was Mrs Mary Crooks who was there as part of her Yoga by the Sea, stretch and stride class. It was the group’s first time to the museum and café and being the 50,000th visitor came as a big surprise.

This week also saw the launch of the Navy Museum Education Programme. A specially designed classroom with a ships brow welcomes organised children’s groups to learn about naval and maritime history at all levels.

“The Torpedo Bay Navy Museum and café has something special for young and old,” said Commander David Wright.

The Torpedo Bay Navy Museum and Café, at 64 King Edward Parade, Devonport, is open 7 days. The café is open from 8am to 5pm and the museum from 10am to 5pm. For more information on the museum please visit or phone 09 445 5186.
