“Not much to see except paintings”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Thought this would be a stately home type visit, but just a range of painting exhibition. Saying that some lovely paintings most with maritime theme.

“This is better than the Maritime Museum”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Dont bother with the maritime museum which is a disappointment - go to this place instead - theres some iconic paintings on show in a lovely buildig - this place is as good as the museum next door is bad.

“Really Nice”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

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!

“It's a stately IMPORTANT 'house' with great naval paintings”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

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!

“Not outstanding, but worth a look if you are in Greenwich”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

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