List of museum ships

(Redirected from Ships preserved in museums)

This list of museum ships is a sortable, annotated list of notable museum ships around the world. This includes "ships preserved in museums" defined broadly but is intended to be limited to substantial (large) ships or, in a few cases, very notable boats or dugout canoes or the like. This list does not include submarines; see List of submarine museums for those. This includes ships currently or formerly serving as museums or preserved at museums. This includes ships on static display or floating and perhaps sometimes used for excursions. It includes only genuine historic ships; replica ships, some associated with museums, are listed separately in the List of ship replicas.

Some historic ships actively used for excursions, and not previously or currently associated with museums, are included in the list of classic vessels. For shipwrecks that may be visited by diving, including some perhaps associated with museums, see List of shipwrecks.

Ships whose coordinates are included below may be seen together in map accessed by clicking on "Map all coordinates using OpenStreetMap" at the right side of this page.

Kuwait

edit

The Kuwaiti Maritime Museum in Salmiya, Kuwait, holds replicas of a number of different types of dhows.[57] The Al-Hashemi-II (1997-2001), in Kuwait City, Kuwait, was recognized by Guinness World Records as the largest wooden dhow ever built; it has never been floated and is used for events. These do not seem to qualify as historic ships preserved in museums so they are not listed here.
