Don't worry about all other tourist traps this museum in the real deal. Kids will be mesmerised and tired after a good look around the floating museum . Schools cubs scouts you can sleep on the ship

Very impressive and there is so much to see that you could spend all day there. A great deal of thought has gone into making the experience interactive, like the smells of the sick bay and dental surgery, the vibration and sounds of the gun turret, the noise of the boiler and engine rooms, and the heat of the kitchen....

You really need to be nibble and agile to get the best out of this trip, there are steps to climb, bulkheads to dodge and steps. I loved it, you can really explore this vessel. The audio gives lots of information. There are toilets and a cafe too.

We were pleased that you could see so much of the ship and really get a feel for the ship including the view from the bridge. My experience was enhanced by the knowledge that my father returned from Singapore on Belfast on its last major voyage before being decommissioned. Like the Belfast he was born there.

As with all of londons museums you need time to explore this ship properly. There are places where its a bit confusing as to which direction to follow. For a person like me who is into war history this was a dream come true. Worth the time spent.

Fantastic old warship and very interesting for my boys aged 11 & 16. A good chance to explore a ship and weaponry. Good set up and displays. Recommended.

Brilliant attraction with clear information by signs and free audio guides. Quite a few steps to take into account as you move around the decks but if taken carefully are no problem. Well worth a visit.
