Admiral Lord Nelson is my my former sailor husband's hero, therefore a visit to this Museum dedicated to Horatio was a must. It's fair to say we both probably found it to be an extremely interesting experience and I certainly came away knowing a little more about the man and his rather tangled personal life!

The Nelson Museum provides an interesting and informative visit for anyone interested in naval history or just history in general.

The museum had a small exhibit -the inside of a sailing ship. plenty of pictures and the dirt on Nelsons seedy love life. If your interested... More

Took about an hour and a half to go round. Good facilities for a small museum - cafe, toilets and lifts. Interesting facts about Nelson and unusual details about the man and the myth. We learnt a lot about his personal life and found out about his connection with the local area.
