Fun for families at the National Maritime Musuem

All hands closure

We're making some improvements. All Hands Gallery will be closed Monday 16 and Saturday 20 April for redecoration. The rest of the museum remains open as usual. 

There are lots of things for children to see and do at the National Maritime Museum; aspiring young pirates and explorers can expect an action-packed, fun day out.
