  • Good fun for all ages. My two young children 3 and 5 enjoy the museum and the tour. Thoroughly good for all ages and quite an eye opener to all things 
  • It was very scientific and quite interesting. If you are new to the attraction the signs were limited so we were not very sure where to go when we got there. We went to use the lift for wheelchair use...  more »

  • 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.
