Visitors to the Pandora Gallery will be captivated by the story of HMS Pandora, the ill-fated ship which was sent to capture the Bounty and her mutinous crew.
HMS Pandora was the British Royal Navy warship dispatched to the South Pacific in pursuit of the infamous Bounty mutineers. Today, the mutiny on the Bounty remains one of the best-known stories in the history of seafaring.
Few, however, are aware of the epic story of the Pandora and the extraordinary efforts of the Royal Navy to recover the “pirated” Bounty, and bring the mutineers to justice. Today Pandora remains as one of the most significant shipwrecks in the Southern Hemisphere.
Visitors will be captivated by the story of the ill-fated Pandora. In this exhibition we present an overview of Pandora's voyage, its history and the museum's ongoing conservation, interpretation and research.
