The National Maritime Museum is the world's largest maritime museum. It has an API that makes collection data and images available

Used In Anger

This section is for detailing any prototypes made with this set. We haven't found any examples yet: let us know if you've made something.

Technical Details

The API is built on Apache Solr, and appears to return XML. The base URL is http://collections.rmg.co.uk/solr (returns a 500)

It is not terribly well documented.

This sample query will find all records with ‘Nelson’ in the title, return the title and description and provide a facet count of each record type: http://collections.rmg.co.uk/solr/?q=name:Nelson&facet=on&facet.field=type&fl=name,%20description
