The museum is dedicated to British rule of the high seas, and that spans a lot of time and battles. It is very interesting to see these from a British perspective, after hearing about them from an American one. The museum is clean, and has...More

We visited the WW1 Battle of Jutland exhibition. The story was well told with lots of interesting exhibits and video presentation. The museum has a good children's area for younger visitors and the Terrace Cafe offers good food.

The ahoy area is great for small children. Can get a bit busy when there are school groups. Kids get to dress up as pirates, try their hand at stoking a fire, cooking, balance a container ship, pull up the rigging. Upstairs there is a...More

We went to see the Franklin Exhibition and it was very good. A wide variety of formats and lots of fascinating items that have been recovered from this doomed expedition to the NW passage.

Visited with young children, found only half open due to redesign, unfortunate for our 1/2 term. Also the work made it hard to move round with push chairs etc, narrow alleyways for prom etc n only one lift.

Oh my gosh! How have I never been to this museum! It's free to visit although they do advise a suggested donation. There are loads of brilliant exhibits as the title suggests to do with water. Lots to see and learn about although some younger...More

I live close to the museum and have been several times with friends this summer and think it is one of the most disappointing experiences in London. The Franklin exhibition is very thin and underwhelming, a lot of the space seems to be taken up...More

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park
and a number of related buildings (and one world
famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World

There's a lovely little cafe inside the museum called the Brasserie - nice views and good food. Equally there are a few good gastropubs further along the river - the Trafalgar Tavern for example.

Our sites are all located in Greenwich, mainly spread around the park and it is possible to walk between each of them. The National Maritime Museum and Queen's House are next to each other with a minimal walk between. The... More
