Unicorn Preservation Society:

The Unicorn Preservation Society is working to protect and preserve HMS Unicorn for future generations to enjoy this incredible museum and piece of world history.  Since 2014, The Unicorn Preservation Society (UPS) has been working to create a sustainable future for HMS Unicorn, which has led to the development of a major maritime project: Operation Safe Haven. HMS Unicorn will form the centre-piece exhibit of the new Dundee Maritime Heritage Centre, acting as a catalyst as Dundee re-discovers and celebrates its maritime past with the next stage of development of the city’s waterfront. Operation Safe Haven will see Unicorn moved to the dry dock where conservation work will continue.
