About

The National Maritime Museum Tour is a great intensive on all things British and naval. The Museum itself is all about the past 500 years of British naval power and traditions.

Due to the philanthropy of Sammy Ofer, the Museum has been improved and expanded, These improvements include the very smart Museum cafe, where we pause half way through the tour for refreshments. Today the Museum has over 2 million artefacts and is the largest museum of its type in the world. The tour includes Turner’s wonderful painting of the Battle of Trafalgar, which he completed in the 1820’s. The king at the time, who had the painting commissioned, was apparently not impressed with Turner’s realism depicting some of the horror of war.
