Royal Museums Greenwich - What's On July

What's On

Major new exhibition - Death in the ice
Opens 14 July

In 1845 Sir John Franklin sailed from England in search of the North-West Passage. Facing some of the most inhospitable conditions on earth, all 129 members of the crew perished in a mystery that has endured for over 150 years.

Following the recent discovery of their ships, we'll display new artefacts for the very first time. Starvation, madness or even cannibalism - can these amazing objects reveal the crew's true fate?
