very interesting tour of a submarine. Really surprised about how cramped it was inside. Staff were knowledgeable and were willing to answer any questions

The restored WW2 submarine has been restored to reflect the decades it was in service. Brilliant guides and an amazing experience. The museum itself is worth at least a day's visit, there is so much to see. The museum is badly signed from outside Gosport so go for town centre and then museum signs.

The Submarine Museum has just been refurbished as I understand, though there are still exhibitions under construction. The highlight without a doubt for us was HMS Alliance, and looking round her was terrific, we really enjoyed it and it was enhanced by speaking with the volunteers on the sub who could answer any question we had and had tales of...

Good stuff. Alliance looks grand, and there's total freedom take photos. The Holland class sub is even more remarkable, a restoration par excellence! All the staff were cheerful and helpful. Lots interesting bits and bobs upstairs. Small shack near the ticket booth had fascinating German mini sub, and missiles. Not so good. Is this the best location? I'd liked to... More

Made a visit to this museum on July 11th 2014, went with my wife and 6 year old grandson. Fantastic day out and educational too, grandson started to ask the tour guide questions.

We went for a family members birthday, we weren't sure what to expect, but were really pleased with the whole day. Our guide who was a volunteer was so helpful and friendly and after experiencing time on a submarine he was well clued up when we asked questions! The submarine was very impressive and it was nice to be able... More

With our 'All Attractions' ticket we were able to enjoy a complimentary waterbus trip across Portsmouth Harbour to visit HMS Alliance and the submarine museum, newly opened for 2014. HMS Alliance is the only remaining WW2 British ocean-going submarine on display to the public. Her appearance now, following a refit during service, does not resemble how she looked in WW2;... More

I took my 7 year old son today and a 16 year old visitor from Canada. We all had the most interesting time. I think the submariner volunteers made it- it was a privilege to hear their first hand experiences of life on board. I really liked seeing how the bunks changed down the ages - including the cheeky magazines... More

Absolutely brilliant and very very interesting. The volunteer staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. The museum and information center is also very impressive and you should save at least a couple of hours to visit.
