Almost universally portrayed as a villain in movies and books, does this view of William Bligh stand scrutiny today?
Bligh - Hero or Villain? challenges this popular narrative, looking beyond the Bounty mutiny to explore the many sides of this most infamous of maritime figures. Come and judge for yourself, but be prepared for some surprises!

"His contradictory character traits and the many parts he played during a life crowded with adventure - egocentric, dutiful, mercurial; hero in battle, victim of circumstance, loving father - will intrigue you and, just possibly, change your opinion of this complex figure forever."
- Dr Nigel Erskine, Head of Research, Australian National Maritime Museum, 2019

Open Daily 9.30am - 5pm
Tickets are valid any day for the duration of the exhibition.
