  • Geared for the younger crowd. Limited otherwise. If you know nothing about Nelson it is worth a visit. Great staff/volunteers.
  • Wowwwwww if you like history and learning this is the place too go. Will be going back as there was sooo much too take in in a small place
  • A Very informative museum. Tell the history of The naval college. A must for the family.
  • Great little museum, lovely staff and very interesting pieces. If you're interested in history definitely worth a look.
  • This museum is suitable for all ages, and has excellant information on Horatio Nelson, his personal life and battles. There are activities for children and the courtyard is lovely with games in it too. I would highly recommend this museum to all ages.
