February is LGBT History Month - a time when across the country we celebrate and reflect on LGBTQ+ lives throughout history. Importantly 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality. To mark this Royal Museums Greenwich will be running a season of events, activities, workshops and talks throughout February. Join us for an evening of speakers talking about gender in the armed forces, a family festival, arts and crafts workshops and much more!
Following the success of the Tall Ships Regatta 2014, the Royal Borough of Greenwich welcomes back a fleet of Tall Ships to the River Thames this Easter. Combine your visit to these beautiful ships with a visit to London's very own Tall Ship, Cutty Sark situated in the heart of Maritime Greenwich.
Opening in July 2017, the exhibition explores the mysterious fate of Sir John Franklin and his crew on their final expedition – a mystery that still remains unsolved today.
Bring your children to Cutty Sark for an action-packed fun day out on one of the world's most famous ships. Let your little ones take the helm at the ship’s wheel, climb into the crew's bunk beds and meet her famous figurehead Nannie the Witch. Follow our free family trail or borrow a backpack of toys and stories.
Looking for fantastic things to do with children? See what's on for families at the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum.

The choice is yours!
