To better acquaint the public with the organisations participating in OUTing the Past 2018, Festival Hub partners have been generously offering insight to their backgrounds and histories. In light of their upcoming OUTing the Past 2018 celebration, the National Maritime Museum has shared:
The National Maritime Museum is an epic place of exploration containing the world’s largest collection of maritime heritage and part of Greenwich Park a UNESCO World Heritage site. Our collection represents the rich and complex story of Britain as an island nation and explores the often challenging relationship we have with environment, the Navy, trade and migration. The Museum is currently undergoing an HLF funded project to build 4 new galleries opening in 2018. This will double the amount of artefacts on display and, by working with local communities, revolutionise how we talk about and share our collections.
The Museum is located on Romney Road, the closest tube station is Cutty Sark DLR. Alternatively you can reach us via Greenwich Rail Station and Maze Hill Rail Station as well as via Thames Clipper to Greenwich Pier.
