  • Great way to spend an afternoon take a slow walk around the museum then pop down to Old Portsmouth for some great food.
  • The permanent exhibitions show an interesting range of history of Portsmouth - from interior housing, to art, history, lifestyle and so on. A nice place to visit on your trip here.
  • Great free couple of hours out with the kids. I particularly like the How we used to live section. Lovely little café & souvineer shop too.
  • Great place to take children, huge garden for them to play in small Cafe to purchase drinks and cake.
  • The museum is a wonderful place to look around and the cafe has just been refurbished . So please go down there and try it out! 😁
