The Edwin Fox is the world’s ninth oldest ship and is the focal point of this small maritime museum near Picton’s ferry terminal. This ship was built in Kolkata (then Calcutta) in 1853 and is the only surviving wooden ship to carry immigrants to New Zealand and convicts to Australia. It is also the oldest surviving troopship that has served in the Crimean War.
