There are so many cool things to check out within the dockyards. The Mary Rose and Royal Navy museums were both awesome and informative. The HMS Victory was a great ship to tour. I wish that I got to go aboard the HMS Warrior. I will definitely see it if I am in the area. This is a great place to bring kids. It also provides a view of any modern ships that happen to be in the dockyards.
The National Museum of the Royal Navy, which is part of the Historic Dockyard, is one of the most fascinating and extensive historical places I've visited. Everything is well laid out, the artifacts and displays are brilliant, and the amount of boots-on-the-ground history is incredible. Of course, H.M.S. Victory, and H.M.S. Warrior are highlights and a terrific experience. Plan on spending at least two days in order to see and explore everything. I could have stayed longer. Hop on over to the Submarine Museum with a free water taxi included in your ticket....which itself is valid for a year.
