What our Family Members say

Taking out Membership is one of the best decisions I have ever made… Each visit offers a truly stimulating and inspiring experience, whether the Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory Greenwich or the beautiful open space which is the Park. I am impressed with the provision for families and impressed with the various programmes and events to inspire children.’
