England is often considered one of the most historic countries in Europe, so it should come as no surprise that it has some of the best museums as well. They run the gamut from breathtaking art to natural history to ancient artifacts, and they will all certainly be a fulfilling part of you tour of England. With so much diversity, it's hard to visit all of them, but if there's one place you must go, make sure it is the famous National Maritime Museum.
Located in Greenwich, many people consider the museum to be the largest of its kind in the world. This impressive building first opened its doors as a museum in 1937, and has since grown to become among the most memorable experience you can have in England. More than just a tribute to the legendary naval history of England, the National Maritime Museum has something for everyone.
Among its most impressive collections in 2013 is Photography from the Mountains to the Sea, which features pieces from famed photographer Ansel Adams. The collection features some of Adams' best-known photographs of American bodies of water including Wyoming's Snake River and the San Francisco Bay.
Of course, the National Maritime Museum would not live up to its name if it did not contain some artifacts from England's most famous seafaring moments. According to LonelyPlanet.com, one of the highlights is the coat worn by Admiral Nelson during the 1805 Battle of Trafalgar - a fight during which he was shot and killed.
The museum also features an exhibit dedicated to England's role in facilitating trade between western Europe and Asia through the East India Company. Regardless of which exhibit you choose, a visit to the National Maritime Museum will certainly stand out as a highlight of you tour of England.
