The National Maritime Museum is "The voyage of your life". Britain's seafaring heritage recreated in a museum full of maritime treasures and artifacts - in fact there are over 2 million items (so it could take you all day!).

There are costumed actors around occasionally to entertain the (big) kids, bringing history to life.

Bring your own picnic and sit out in Greenwich Royal Park or eat in at the Regatta Cafe fully accessible to all visitors.

The museum houses exhibits on three levels:

On the ground floor of the National Maritime MuseumOn the ground floor of the National Maritime Museum you will find areas covering Arctic and Medieval explorers, Passengers (on ships), an art room called the Mess Deck, an activity room called the Quarter Deck. a lecture theatre, Rank and Style (Naval uniforms) and Maritime London.

The second level areas cover Your Ocean, Friends Room, Library, e-Library, Baltic Glass Display, Art and the Sea, Upper Deck collection and what we believe is the most important area of the whole museum Nelson's Navy, with Admiral Lord Nelson's actual uniform worn at the Battle of Trafalgar, bearing the bullet holes and still marked with his blood! Together with many artifacts and an interactive battle table.

The third level has areas for Oceans of Discovery, Friends Office and a fun, interactive simulator where you can pilot a craft at sea yourself.
