“Amazed”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

It was amazing how much information about one person and where he had fought. The pieces of pottery that covered his career and achievements are placed together with the information.

“Great video footage”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a walk through of the battle and the main players. The evidence and shows are well produced and suitable for all ages. Brings home the battle and sets the scene for a visit to the great ship herself !

“So well done.”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

The 10 minute Trafalger Experience is extremely well done and thoroughly recommended. I still can't believe that is Wyllie's original painting of the battle on display.

“Learnt a lot about this famous battle”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is a 15 minute experience well worth your time. It is situated to the right when you enter the National Navy Museum. You should visit this first before you board the HMS Victory. It puts it all into perspective for you. The experience runs every 30 minutes so you just wait at the door until the time. Ask the friendly man at the door when you enter the museum to point you in the direction.

The experience takes you through the battle including the lead up and the strategy that Nelson used to win. There is a display with all the ships in their exact places during the battle so you can see the mistake the French and Spanish made and mastermind of Nelson. You also see William Wyllie’s amazing 42 feet long painting The Panorama of the Battle of Trafalgar. He painted this when he was 79 years old and is stunning to see the detail of this amazing masterpiece. There is lots noise of the guns going off and some knowledge about Nelson's death. You will later see on the Victory the exact spot where he was shot.

If you are interested in this famous battle then worth the 15 minutes. Not for little kids due to noise and because they would find it boring. There is a lot of talking and historical information given at the beginning.
