Royal Museums Greenwich
Royal Museums Greenwich comprises the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, Queen’s House and the Prince Phillip Maritime Collection Centre. Together we’re dedicated to enriching people’s understanding of the sea, the exploration of space, and Britain's role in world history.​

Do you like working with historical documents? Would you like to know more about medicine at sea? Help Royal Museums Greenwich transcribe the records of the Dreadnought Seaman's hospital, a seafarer's charity based in Greenwich from 1826-1977, and make over a century's worth of medical data available for research into the health of the maritime community.
