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

This is the second time I have visited here and it is well worth doing. Just wandering around outside these buildings is amazing and the exhibits within are something special. Spend anywhere between a couple of hours to all day, you will not be disappointed.

We went to see the traveling exhibit on the Franklin expedition, which was fantastic. This is a must-see before it ends in Jan 2018. The rest of the museum was underwhelming and was crawling with children. Skip the museum and see the exhibit.

The death in the ice exhibition was interesting and sad but somehow disappointing. Perhaps this is because ultimately no one yet knows the whole reason for the disappearance of all these explorers. But the exhibition actually felt a bit sparse and pulled together with alot...More

One of the free museums of London. Plenty of space to view and varied exhibits. No real route to get a feel for an historical flow though and the exhibits are disjointed. The ww1 and the battle of jutland exhibits overlapped dignificantly. The slavery exhibit...More

An outstanding exhibition, this tells the story of the two lost ships which went missing, along with their crew, in the search for the North West passage. Evocative and mature, the soundscapes and images place you in the freezing deserted island landscape where the ships...More

Great for kids as well as adults. Loved all the exhibits especially on the Battle of Dunkirk and the one about Nelson.

It was a very nice museum and is located at Greenwich. Lot of information which you can get from here. I really liked the battle of Trafalgar and war of Jutland. Overall very good experience and must to see place for history lover.

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
Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a

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.
