Mary I was born at Greenwich Palace on 18 February 1516.
Her rule led to 280 Protestants being burnt at the stake. How did she become the first Queen of England?

Who was Mary 'bloody' Tudor? During her turbulent life, Mary became the first Queen of England, led an unpopular Catholic reign, and condemned 280 Protestants to death.

Thank you so much to The National Maritime Museum for making our Mini Microtia Mingle so memorable for all our children. The staff, especially Sharon (special needs liaison officer) was so helpful with the museum arranging an area for us to eat our lunches. Absolutely fantastic museum, lots to do and most importantly the kids had a fantastic time!! X See More

Would like to thank the museum and John Wilson, BSL presenter, for leading a group of d/Deaf people using British Sign Language to have access to the 'Death in the Ice' exhibition. Was allowed to expl...ore afterwards. It was good to understand better about the 170 years mystery in the North West Passage. Well worth visiting. See More

A wonderful exhibition on the search for Sir John Franklin and the Artic expeditions of The HMS Erebus and Terror.
The exhibition starts with details of how all the expeditions explored and mapped the... uncharted territory and the search to find the North West Passage.
It has lots of artifacts on view and detailed information about these and the expeditions.
We were there about two and a half hours and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Great to see that new discoveries are now occurring since both ships have been found.
Well worth a visit.

Very interesting exhibition about Nelson and life for sailors in those days including Nelson's uniform with bullet hole. Still exhausted by walk up hill but we went to the 'Meet the neighbours' presen...tation at the Planetarium. Took me back to the old days at Mme Tussauds before they lost interest in educating their visitors. Too much to see in one day but definitely one of the 'must sees' of London See More

The exhibition Emma Hamilton: Seduction and Celebrity is outstanding. Superbly designed, it brings you close to Emma, the people associated with her (not just Nelson), and the age in which she lived. ...The range and richness of the exhibits, and the clarity with which they are explained, are perfect examples of how to present an exhibition, and the auxiliary displays, e.g. the graphics explaining Emma's role in Naples during the conflict with French forces, are easy to follow yet without a hint of "dumbing down". We were given a lucid, entertaining talk, and as if all this were not enough, the chance to encounter so many of George Romney's incomparably sympathetic portraits, which exalt this beautiful woman's humanity as no other painter could, was supremely moving.

Had a great time with a lot to see, especially took notice of the Time Ball that drops at exactly 1pm every day. Great history behind why it does this too. Wonderful family fun.

I went there with a friend in a wheelchair, the museum is not wheelchair friendly the downstairs disabled toilets have a big heavy door which you need help from an able body person to hold it open. N...o dignity for any wheelchair person. A simple button to press to open the door. See More

Made an order online. They sent me totally the wrong thing. Now refusing to give me a refund and I'm stuck with a print I'd never seen before and don't want. No one gets back to me. Bad experience.

The best play area for kids that I know of (Ahoy). My 3 year old loves it and so do I - it takes me back to being a kid. Also the world map is loads of fun to stomp around on. We will be coming back f...or years to come, as there's plenty for all ages. My favourite London museum! See More

So good to see an exhibition focused on a woman - Emma Hamilton, Seduction & Celebrity. I clever and beautiful woman who is defined in history by her relationships with men, however she was so much than that - in another age could have accomplished so much more. Lots of portraits and engravings of Emma and her contemporaries, along with keepsakes, mementos and a surprisingly number of letters. All very illuminating. Shame on England for not looking after Nelson's last love. The exhibition ends today {17.4.17}, so get there this afternoon! See More

It was a beautiful experience.
Everything had an informative write up ..
It was all up close and some hands on pieces.....
Some areas a little too dark and hard to get a nice photo to remember the pieces ..
But an overall great experience.
Well done.

It was brilliant so much to see and plenty of interaction , the grounds themselves are fabulous to simply meander through. We didn't have enough time so we will visit again with a picnic . Fascinating place.
