This is a fascinating building with some really great works of art. Well worth a visit. Sadly, there weren't that many people looking around when we went (27 July, 2013) especially as the rest of Greenwich was very busy. If you like art which is focused on naval history, this is a must!

If you love your naval history, the Queen's House is for you. Great paintings on display in this important and first of it's type of stately 'house'. If one finds oneself in Greenwich visit Queen's House. We loved all references to Captain Cook!

Some artwork and the grounds were quite impressive, but other than that, no more than a 15-minute attraction.

If you're in Greenwich; this place is worth a visit. But unless you're interested in naval history and naval paintings; it's rather boring and plain. One must-do it here is to see Turner's famous painting "The Battle of Trafalgar" which is located at the ground floor and you're allowed to take pictures. The place is worth half an hour of visit before heading to the Maritime Museum or walking up to the Royal Observatory.

This is a very nice art gallery but there is little more if you want to know the history of the building and the Naval College. Lots of Naval-related art and some interesting London and Royal subject pieces as well.
