The National Maritime Museum is the largest museum of its kind in the world, filled with stories of exploration and human endeavour.
The historic buildings form part of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, and it also incorporates the Royal Observatory, and 17th-century Queen's House. In 2012, Her Majesty The Queen formally approved Royal Museums Greenwich as the new overall title for the National Maritime Museum, Queen’s House, the Royal Observatory, Greenwich and the Cutty Sark.
Discover stories about Britain's encounter with the world at sea, learn about the life of great British hero Admiral Horatio Nelson and the Royal Navy, and see the uniform he wore when he was fatally wounded at the Battle of Trafalgar.
The National Maritime Museum host free and ticketed events, from lectures by our curators, music nights to seasonal family celebrations.
