  • The look and atmosphere are there, but only a small amount of the old girl is original, and most of the cannon are made of glassfibre. Very impressive all the same.  more »
  • The ship is very impressive and very lovingly restored. However, you must pay real attention on his head.

  • As a lover of naval history I have wanted to come here and see in HMS Victory my entire life. It did NOT disappoint!! The ship is preserved beautifully! It is an absolute marvel to behold!! The audio guide is excellent!! Walking you thought each step of the battle of Trafalgar. Even my wife who unusually doesn't enjoy audio guides listen the the einter thing. The ready of museum is magnificent as well! Tons of fascinating things to learn and plenty for everyone young and old to enjoy! The "action station" exhibit was especially fun for kids. Thai museum is a most see for anyone even remotely interested in naval history!
  • Great historic ship. very few text displays make the audio guide an essential part of the visit. i think they've made it less grusome than i remember from my childhood.
  • A very enjoyable experience! This ship has such a rich history and the audio tour revives its most interesting moments. A very unique museum for the whole family to enjoy.
  • This was a very good is it to me. It was my first time in a ship equipped with canons and was very impressive!! The interior is good and full of guides that explain you the details if you ask them. The ship has six floors! It's quite big. I recommend the visit!
  • A must for any British or Navy history fan. The tour (which is provided at a cost) is both fun and engaging and great for all ages.
