  • Truly an amazing place to visit. Loved finding out about the private life of Admiral Nelson and Lady Hamilton. The museum showcases the history of the Royal Navy with plenty of activities for the kids to do.
  • A great museum, most notably the Mary Rose and HMS Victory exhibits. The amount of information is impressive and the layout of the experience is intelligent and immersive, well worth the ticket to all attractions even if you just have a passing interest in British naval history. There's plenty of amenities too, all round good day out. Mind your head on the Victory!
  • Beautiful place. Lovely church. And a fantastic wedding had by all
  • Great insight into British navel history. I would highly recommend the wait to get on HMS victory.
  • Interesting exhibition, more relaxed tempo that the other museums in the dockyard. Possibly better suited for adults and older children.
