  • Didn't really have an interest in submarines but I came away more interested so... If you're in the area, go for it, just don't go hell out of your way to visit... unless submarines really get you going. It's a little pricy for what it is but it was an overall good experience. Yes, you do get to walk through an actual. Submarine.
  • Somewhat difficult to access, but most certainly worth the journey, the Royal Navy Submarine Museum is a quirky and fascinating little museum featuring a wide variety of subnautical exhibits. Highlights include HMS Holland, the Royal Navy's first operational submarine, a number of functional periscopes and a German minisubmarine. The site also features a small Cafe and a ticket office for booking tours on the attached museum ship HMS Alliance, a World War II era submarine. Worth a visit for any fans of submarine warfare!
  • I took my two boys (4 and 8) for a day out. We all had a great time. The museum is small but full of interesting things. The tour of the submarine HMS Alliance was a highlight. The submariners on board were ready to answer all the questions fired at them and were friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this for a morning out. Good stuff.
  • Enjoyable museum and liked the format of the tour of the submarine by a retired sailor. Had I gone through on my own I'd have rushed through and not learnt nearly as much. Other exhibitions were interesting but the cafe could do with some attention.
  • Really fascinating. You get to walk through a nice old sub. The mini subs on display are really interesting.
