Spain's National Exhibition of Ship Building (Exponav) is an all-year-round permanent exhibition dedicated to the history of shipbuilding in Spain since its most humble and obscure beginnings in the Middle Ages to its present day, covering different periods which include amongst others the Spanish Empire, the Discovery of America, Enlightenment and Industrial Age.

This exhibition opened its doors permanently on 10 March 2008 and is open to the public free of charge. There are special provisions made for visiting schools and other educational institutions to make the whole experience a rich visit.

The naval station of Ferrol, in north-western Spain, has been chosen as the permanent base to host this exhibition indefinitely.

Listed Building: Special Architecture, History and Cultural Significance

The building chosen in Ferrol to host this exhibition is the “Building of Herrerias” (a.k.a. Edificio de Herrerías) a good example of Spanish neoclassical architecture fully restored to its former glory when it was newly built in the 18th century
