Head to the National Maritime Museum and recall the romance of the great ocean liners, appreciate the elegance of Prince Frederick’s golden barge, delve into the traditions of maritime London and explore the controversial history of trade across the Atlantic.


After a spectacular entrance through the sound of breaking waves you arrive in one of the greatest maritime museums of the world – The National Maritime Museum in London, containing models, displays, paintings and trophies from every continent of the world.

Arranged in a series of themed exhibition galleries you can recall the romance of the great ocean liners, appreciate the elegance of Prince Frederick’s golden barge, delve into the traditions of maritime London and study the controversial history of trade across the Atlantic.

Children find plenty to engage them in the All Hands gallery while young people can try their hand on the professional ship simulator on the Bridge or study the impact of careless behaviour on the ocean environment.

The museum has a full programme of fun free family events, serious lectures, an important reference library of books and manuscripts and an e-library for personal research. The National Maritime Museum is a large museum with many items of particular interest to maritime specialists and model-makers.

Take a break during your visit at the Paul patisserie and coffee shop or dine economically in the Regatta licensed restaurant.

Before you leave, take time to visit the well-stocked shop which includes a large number of exclusive items relating to the museum collections including some of the National Maritime Museum’s own publications.

In recent years, the National Maritime Museum has won Visit London awards for the quality of customer service and its sustainability and access policies. It aims to set a high standard and is accredited as a Quality Visitor Attraction.
