The Maritime Museum of San Diego is a museum with a large collection of historic ships and other sea vessels.
One of the items in its collection is the HMS Surprise. Originally called the HMS Rose, the ship was purchased in 2001 by Twentieth Century Fox film studio to be modified and transformed into the HMS Surprise for the filming of Fox’s Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003).
The ship was used once again for the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) as Captain Barbossa’s HMS Providence.
Today, you can visit the HMS Surprise along with other historic ships along the shores of San Diego Bay.
