We are OPEN

Cutty Sark, the Royal Observatory Greenwich, National Maritime Museum and the Queen's House are now open daily from 10am-5pm.

Spend a day in Greenwich and explore some of our fantastic galleries and historic sites. Check our What's On guide for the latest news on special exhibitions, museum events and Planetarium shows.

Remember that for all our sites you will need to book tickets online in advance.

Our grounds, museum shops and café next to Greenwich Park are also open to all. You don't need a ticket to enter these areas.


How to book tickets

You must book your visit online in advance, even if you're a Member. Pre-booked tickets ensure that visits are spread out throughout the day, and that sites don’t exceed their capacity. There is no limit to the time you can spend on our sites. 

  • When you choose your ticket you will be taken to our online booking system.
  • First pick your date and entry time using the calendar button.
  • Then select the number of tickets you require and click 'add to basket'.
  • Your ticket will be emailed to you once you have completed the booking process.
  • Remember to bring this with you on the day of your visit - you can either show it on your phone or print out a copy.

If you want to visit both the Cutty Sark and the Royal Observatory, you can buy a Royal Museums Greenwich Day Pass and save up to 20% on the cost of your tickets.

Tickets and prices

If you are displaying coronavirus symptoms or have been told to self-isolate, please do not visit our sites. Email to postpone your visit until it is safe and possible to do so.

Keeping everyone safe

Things may look a little different when you return. Some smaller gallery spaces and interactive exhibits may be closed during your visit in order to ensure social distancing, but our new visitor routes will help you explore the best our sites have to offer.

We've been awarded 'good to go' status for our coronavirus measures, and the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers remains our highest priority. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Support us

This has been the toughest time in the Museum's history. For every month we were closed, we lost £1 million in revenue – yet care for our collections and buildings continues
