    Visited August 2017 and it was closed, pending the move to the Historic Dockyard. There's no other reason to go to this end of Southsea, so you can save yourself a journey.  more »

  • Included in Dockyard ticket. Laid out. A well spent couple of hours.
  • It's closed now as it's moving to the dockyard, but I've been here before several times.the Royal marines have a rich history, well worth seeing when it reopens
  • WHY, OH WHY, doesn't whoever runs this museum and cafe take down the signs for the cafe. We thought we would pop into the cafe lunch, we couldn't make why there were only a few cars parked in the car park. We had to pay for 3 hours as it was, we then walked round to where the signs pointed to. As we went along along all doors were locked and windows were boarded in. We felt rather ripped off as we had paid for parking and we couldn't get a drink and some lunch. Very disappointed !!
  • Brilliant displays & a wonderful Museum overall. It's just a travesty that the Museum is being moved away from the Barracks even though we'd all rather see it stay where it rightfully belongs
  • Great day out, lots of very good exhibits, shame to see it go
