National Maritime Museum opens Royal River. Power, Pageantry and the Thames exhibition

The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich presents Royal River. Power, Pageantry and the Thames, an exhibition on view 27 April–9 September 2012.

This spectacular exhibition, a landmark heritage event of the year, brings together nearly 400 beautiful, fascinating and often unique objects, including one of the largest-ever loans of Royal Collection objects to any museum. Created to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and guest-curated by historian David Starkey, Royal River presents the historic Thames in all its glory, from British royal and City events to London’s famous watermen, and the river’s transformation after the notorious ‘Great Stink’.
