Plan your visit
The National Maritime Museum has now reopened. Entry is still free, but all visitors including Members must pre-book their visit online in advance.
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.
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.
Find useful information about facilities at our museums including cloakrooms, baby change and accessibility, and information for visitors with disabilities coming to any of our sites.
We hope you love our free World Oceans Day events. With your help we can continue to deliver our vibrant learning and wellbeing programmes at a time when society needs arts, culture and education more than ever. Please support the future work of the Museum by donating here.

About World Oceans Day
Our lives are all dependent on the ocean. It’s how we travel, trade and resource our existence.
We may not view it every day, but its influence on us, and our effect on it, is woven into the fabric of our lives.
The National Maritime Museum is creating a space to interrogate our relationship with the ocean, to raise awareness of its constant influence and consider the care we need to take now, to ensure our ocean, our climate and our environment remain safe for future generations.
The platform of World Oceans Day gives an opportunity to celebrate and reflect on the ocean. It’s a day for inspiration and collaboration, as we seek a better understanding of how to support a healthy ocean, to create a healthier, sustainable global climate and an environment habitable for all.
