Our grandson loves the Octonauts so we took him to see the 'real thing'. We all squeezed into HMS Alliance and were amazed at every dial, switch and handle. Its packed from end to end with instrumentation - what wonderful fun for a curious young man and his ganddad. To be fair there were a few realistic noises that got... More

the museum is fab, average enterary price, for this sort of museum. My son loved seeing all the things in there and having all the dials and knobs to play with. He couldn't believe the size of the nuke missiles , and puzzled how they fit into a sub. The subermarine is full of the smells the sounds and you... More

Our second visit to the dock yard using our return anytime for twelve months ticket. Free boat trip to the museum from the Naval Dock Yard, about 10 minutes with very entertaining commentary on board! Very polite and friendly crew. Well organised with time slots so not over crowded. Guides on the submarine were ex submariners at least one of... More

Very good experience, well worth a visit. So much to see and all explained very well. Great for kids who should understand what others did to keep us free………..

Be aware the best way to get across is to take the water taxi from the main museum area. But space is limited and ques form for the taxi boat. Ie que a bit earlier! The submarine itself is impressive and being given the tour by ex submariners adds to the authenticity. The kids *love* looking through the periscope. The... More

Too expensive for a publicly paid for and funded attraction, (would have cost us £72.00) Disappointing to not have seen it after traveling by car from Worthing to Portsmouth and then a further trip of surprisingly 40 minutes around to Gosport.

Visited the Royal Navy Submarine Museum with my son and we both really enjoyed it. Ex submariners showed us around the old submarine itself which along with the noises and lights gave a real impression of what sailing in a submarine was like. The rest of the museum was interesting with plenty of exhibits aimed at both children and adults.

We went over on the ferry as part of the value-for-money 'all attractions' year ticket. Lovely trip across the harbour. The museum kept my 12 and 9 year old boys busy for about two hours. The submarine itself is a thrilling visit. You really get a sense if what it was like and this is harped by the guides who... More

We both had a great time. The museum was great there was a lot of things to see but most important things to interact with. The best bit was going on the submarine and the information given from the guide was very factual and impressed me and my dad. Also going through the submarine was an insight to what the... More

This museum is fantastic and really worth a visit. It has 2 of the oldest submarines in existence in the museum. And the modern WW2 submarine was a joy to walk through. Do I recommend this Museum, damn right I do, I've been 3 times in the space of 2 months.
