  • Fab evening. Got to go round the explosion museum as part of the entry fee. Been here many times before and see something new, that I missed on the previous visits. Will continue to visit.  more »

  • Brilliant place for families to visit and have a few hours out. Also a lovely cafe just to go for a coffee with seating on the waterfront looking over Portsmouth docklands.
  • An excellent day out. There is a lot of history on the building. We found the locker room particularly interesting reading about all of the different jobs needed to make the armaments. An some of the lockers you could listen to some of the workers talking about what they did and some fun things they got up to. The rest of the exhibition is really good with weapons right through history and some good interactive parts.
  • Great museum very informative lots to see and learn good cafe lovely cakes. Take the free boat trip from the historic boat yard.
  • Could do better - the manufacturing process could be demonstrated better throughout the years, rather than static displays of guns etc
  • Hidden gem - out of the way but worth a visit. Collection of naval gunnery, arms and ammunition. Fascinating history... great AV of the buildings past though this bit can be shut when they are hosting weddings and other events. Displays include small arms and missiles from the early days of gunpowder to the present day. Parking is easy and great views of the harbour. Perhaps not 'cheap' and limited fun or enough to hold attention for younger visitors though.
