The museum was much bigger than we thought and actually ran out of time. It is very good for a free attraction and I found it interesting even though I didn't think I would. I think this is perfect for families with kids

I’ve been to a few maritime museums around the world and have always enjoyed it. Considering the hugely eventful maritime history Britain’s how, I had high hopes for this museum. I was throughly disappointed. Very little on our naval battles, very little on the personal stories of those at sea, very little on how it impacted the history of the country. It seemed really tame and lifeless. Some good things, plenty on trade and models of ships etc, but that’s pretty much it. I’ve heard it use to be a lot better. it’s turned into a national embarrassment.

National Museum Greenwich – One of the larger maritime museums in the world, this place celebrates sailing. Of particular note is the exhibit of sailing ship figureheads. Located by the Royal Naval College and the Cutty Sark sailing ship in dry dock, the museum is a pleasant way to reflect upon Brittania’s proud sailing heritage. Plenty of exhibits to occupy two hours if interested. Better to see – The Chapel of St Peter and St Paul at the Old Royal Naval College next door. Visited late Fall 2019.

Visited here as part of a day trip to Greenwich. We had prebooked tickets although it was free to enter. We particularly wanted to see the figureheads which we did. This is great museum for marine enthusiasts as there is a lot to see. Recommended if this sort of thing ‘floats your boat’. Nice cafe.

I really enjoyed my visit even though I was initially unsure, I am not a great fan of model boats and paintings of maritime heroes but I do enjoy history and there was bucket loads of that. Very relaxed poodle round with so few visitors, assisted by charming staff.
