  • Excellent museum, I really enjoyed the aspects of daily life in Portsmouth that were included. My group was able to meet and talk to a British WWII and D-Day veteran while there. The tapestry is absolutely amazing!
  • Best place when students love history however it cannot take picture。
  • Love this place there's a lot to do very reasonable to get in and has a cafe what more do you want😄😄
  • Excellently arranged, from outside you can't even guess how much history they managed to fit inside! It was the first time I have ever seen a barv too! 😊
  • Liked it, great exhibits, though looked little dark inside.
