Uncover the history of the deep-sea diver

Gosport, Hampshire

Learn about the history of diving at the place it was pioneered.

Find out what it takes to be a deep sea diver at the Diving Museum in Gosport – the original home of diving.

Here you can see one of the best collections of diving equipment in the world, and hear some terrifying tales from the deep. You’ll learn how some divers were literally squashed into their helmets, burst their lungs or were crippled by the ‘bends’ while others had to fend off attacks by sharks and giant octopus or were even blown to pieces by an underwater mine.
