The 83rd annual SA Museums Association (SAMA) National Conference was held in Pietermaritzburg over the period 22-24 October 2019. Although the SA Naval Museum did not attend this year’s conference, it nevertheless entered the Publications Awards competition and won Category C for the best Museum Website! The new SA Naval Museum website was designed by Ansel van Schalkwyk with conceptualization and content provided by Commander Leon Steyn and launched towards the end of 2018. The development of the website stems from the need to provide a reliable and attractive social media platform that would be accessible to the general public and from which other social media platforms such as facebook and twitter could be anchored. The website is updated on a regular basis with news articles and events information. Visit the website at .
