Exhibition to tell the story of the Mona's Queen

Fri, 24 Mar 2023

An exhibition will commemorate the Mona's Queen later this year.

On May 29th 1940, the Isle of Man Steam Packet vessel Mona's Queen was lost after she struck a mine on her way into Dunkirk to help with Operation Dynamo.

An exhibition to commemorate the Mona's Queen will go on display for two weeks at Port St Mary Town Hall from 22nd May. 

The exhibition tells the story of the Mona's Queen, and includes the original plans for the ship, launch photos, the apprentices model, original tableware, ship's pennants, photographs and video of the wreck today, as well as the stories of the other Steam Packet ships and their crews.

Next month, a dive team from the Isle of Man will be travelling to Dunkirk to photograph and video the Mona’s Queen wreck.
