Discover stories about Britain's encounter with the world at sea through our galleries that recall the romance of the great ocean liners, the history of trade across the Atlantic and the impact of the East India Company on British culture and more. See Nelson’s uniform from the Battle of Trafalgar and Prince Frederick’s beautiful gilded barge.
Children can shoot down a dastardly pirate ship in a new interactive game; older kids will enjoy our ship simulator.
We host free and ticketed events, from lectures by our curators, music nights to seasonal family celebrations.
On site eateries include Paul bakery, our Museum Café and our elegant 16 Seconds West Brasserie.
