Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire, RevolutionThe National Maritime Museum explores the life of one of history's best-known Londoners, diarist Samuel Pepys, this year with major exhibition Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire, Revolution. Pepys was one of the most colourful and appealing characters of the seventeenth-century and witness to the great events that shaped Stuart Britain. His diary documented a time of turmoil in which kings fought for their crowns and medieval London was destroyed by the plague, fire and war, before being resurrected as a world city. Through the voice and personality of Samuel Pepys, who was a gossip and a socialite, the exhibition will explore the period from the execution of Charles I in 1649 to the Glorious Revolution of 1688 with 200 paintings and objects from museums, galleries and private collections across Britain and beyond.

 

About National Maritime Museum

Located in the heart of Greenwich, the National Maritime Museum has a monumental mission: to showcase mankind's association with the sea. The collection dates back to 1823 when a National Gallery of Naval Art was established, and the museum is housed in an elegant building which used to be an asylum.
