News Shopper: Visitor record for Royal Museums Greenwich Visitor record for Royal Museums Greenwich

Greenwich museums have seen a record-breaking number of visitors in the past year.

The National Maritime Museum, Queen’s House, Royal Observatory and Cutty Sark have welcomed 2.8 million people in 2013/14, the highest ever achieved in their 80-year history.

Museum chiefs credit the Sammy Ofer Wing at the National Maritime Museum with doubling visitors since it opened in mid-2011

Director of Royal Museums Greenwich Kevin Fewster said: "Royal Museums Greenwich is receiving record visitor numbers following on from the opening of the

Sammy Ofer Wing , and afterglow of the Olympics in Greenwich. This I’m sure is part of the reason why our attendance has increased so spectacularly."

Due to strong demand, the museum has arranged a series of late openings for its Turner and the Sea exhibition between now and April 21.
