The museum is hosting an exhibition entitled Royal River: Power, Pageantry and the Thames, which provides a perspective of the history of England's monarchy from the famous 'royal river'.
Once upon a time, the majestic river was filled with magnificent gilded barges, liverymen in eye-catching uniforms and opulent celebrations.
This exhibition takes visitors to the museum back to this decadent time, bringing together almost 400 artefacts, many of which are from the Royal Collection.
It was created to mark Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Guests at the institution can also peruse the rest of the museum's collection, which encompasses more than two million objects related to seafaring.
Art fans are also well catered to, as the museum displays both British and Dutch maritime art, alongside its manuscripts, ship models and cartography.
