The National Maritime Museum is set to reopen in early September, meaning all of Royal Museums Greenwich's (RMG) big attractions have opened their doors once again, albeit in a slightly different format.

The Cutty Sark, Royal Observatory and Queen's House are already open, and the National Maritime Museum with its stories and galleries of exploration and endeavour will reopen to all visitors on September 7.

Organisers say they have been working hard to prepare for visitors to return, and a new raft of safety measures are in place to limit the spread of Covid-19.

The main thing is to book a timeslot in advance, with RMG monitoring numbers to ensure people have enough space to explore the sites safely.

Masks are required, cleaning stations are provided, and a one-way system is also in place across the museum sites.

News Shopper:

The award-winning and family friendly National Maritime Museum, which has over two million objects on show, is free.

The Cutty Sark and Royal Observatory Greenwich are also offering free entry for children with every paying adult up until the end of August.

Whilst commuting and tourist numbers still remain low, the reopening of iconic tourist attractions such as these are a boost for the area.
