A brilliant place that leaves you inspired and curious, exactly what an attraction like this should do. IMO this is one of the best historic places to visit in London...

I’ve been to #NationalMaritimeMuseum in Greenwich many times, but first time as a dad. It’s absolutely fantastic for small children. GO!
