Discover the history of Britain at sea! The National Maritime Museum is the largest one of its kind in the world, chronicling 500 years of British seafaring. Learn about the famous (or perhaps infamous) East India Company, the Arctic Convoys of the 1940s and the dynamic new Voyagers gallery, showing you what it was like being at sea.
Relive famous naval victories through the Nelson exhibit, and even see the clothes he was wearing when he did it. Find out how seaman navigated the expansive oceans and gaze upon the treasures they found while doing so.
There’s so much history behind Britain’s seafaring that this museum could keep you entertained all day, and tickets for limited exhibitions lets you come back again if you wished.
