Welcome to the Silentworld Foundation Collection

The Silentworld Foundation Collection reflects a 35-year love affair with maritime history and the extraordinary achievements of the brave mariners, from many nations, who sailed from their home countries to expand contemporary knowledge of the world in the 15th to 19th centuries. The collection comprises over 2,000 original objects including maps, paintings, manuscripts, shipwreck material, ephemera, coins and medallions, militaria and historical artefacts.
