National Maritime Museum

Set sail for a fun day out at this interactive and family focused museum. Get a tablet from the information desk and use it to "travel" across the Great Map, a giant atlas within the AHOY! Children's Centre, and uncover salty stories of pirates, Scott’s Antarctic expedition and much more. 

 

In the AHOY! Children’s Centre, kids can also stoke the boiler of a steamship, catch a fish or even set sail from an interactive boatyard. Don’t miss the display with the uniform Lord Nelson was wearing when he was killed in action!  

 

Make a whole day of it and visit nearby Greenwich Park for some fun and outdoor games. You’ll discover a really beautiful part of London and the kids will discover fun facts - and hopefully their sea legs too!  

 

Kidadler Hayley recommends the "wonderful interactive kids' gallery / play zone 'Ahoy!' just inside the main entrance. It's incredible!"
