Owner description: Experience the world's largest maritime museum, filled with inspirational stories of exploration and endeavour at sea and packed to the gunwales with intriguing objects and fascinating galleries. See the uniform Nelson wore at the Battle of Trafalgar, steer a ship into port and fire at pesky pirates.

We visited in April 2013 for the Ansell Adams exhibition, which was wonderful. We also visited the Museum, Royal Observatory and Cutty Sark as part of our Big Ticket entrance fee. This was very good value for money.

The Maritime Museum was very interesting and informative.

But a bit confusing, or more precisely, disjointed, in layout. Admission is free, I'd recommend checking it out if you are planning to spend the day in Greenwich.

I had a very enjoyable visit to the Maritime museum while I was in Greenwich. Free entry (unusual in London), good exhibits, beautiful surroundings and views, well worth a visit.

Brilliant.These black and white photographs are stunning and well worth looking at.The exhibition is not huge and is part of the big ticket entrance to Cutty Sark and the Observatory.
The actual Maritime museum I thought a little disapointing considering what a huge seafaring nation we are there could be so much more to it.Very good shop withlots for children.
The is a good walk up a hill no provision of help for disabled or elderly.

It took a bit of time to understand the layout even using the plan/map. We missed a number of short cuts to certain areas because wall signs were certainly not the best we've seen!
However once you learn the layout it all becomes clear. This is a good place to take children as there are areas specifically for them.
The museum has a very open feel to it and is a very modern building. We have visited many far more exciting maritime museums on holidays abroad(before we started review writing) hence the average rating given to this one.
