The National Maritime Museum is the largest museum of its kind in the world, filled with stories of exploration and human endeavour.
Museums are free to enter and don't need to be pre-booked, but they do get busy. We recommend visiting early, ideally around opening time.
The National Maritime Museum is the world's largest maritime museum with 10 free galleries and a vast collection that spans artworks, maps and charts, memorabilia and thousands of other objects.
Discover stories about Britain's encounter with the world at sea, learn about the life of great British hero Admiral Horatio Nelson, and see the uniform he wore when he was fatally wounded at the Battle of Trafalgar.
We host free and ticketed events, from lectures by our curators, music nights to seasonal family celebrations.
The Brasserie restaurant at the National Maritime Museum serves contemporary British food with stunning views over Greenwich Park. The Brasserie uses seasonal and local ingredients and takes the history of Greenwich as inspiration for its menu of contemporary British food.
Located on the ground floor in the Sammy Ofer Wing, the Museum Café offers healthy salads and deli sandwiches, hearty plates and afternoon teas with home-baked cakes and pastries for all the family. From our outdoor terrace you can also enjoy stunning views over Greenwich Park.
Neptune Café serves a wide selection of quality soups, salads, sandwiches and cakes, which are made fresh every day by our team of chefs. Located on the first floor of the Museum this open plan café borders the the Great Map - our giant world atlas - with ample space to park buggies and allow the little ones to explore continents while you enjoy a cappuccino.
