The star of the show is HMS Alliance - a tour around which, led by the highly knowledgeable guide, is not to be missed for anyone with interests in all things nautical. Only when wedged into such cramped conditions can you truly begin to comprehend what life must be like for submariners. It certainly took me aback and filled me... More

Great tour of the submarine, the kids really enjoyed it. It was also very rich in history and information, and we've been twice so far. Would recommend for a family day out.

My second visit to this museum, first about 2 years ago. The guided tour of Alliance is a superb way to start to understand what 2-3 months would be like. The ex-submariner guides are happy to answer as many questions as you can think of and tell of their own experiences. I'm sure that 2 years ago the guide went... More

We have visited this Museum on various occasions over the years but this was our first trip since the refurbishment of HMS Alliance and we were very impressed by the experience. Our visit was driven by the improved connection via the Harbour Tours from the Royal Naval Museum. The journey, the arrival and tour ticket issue was slickly and efficiently... More

Very interesting especially being shown around the submarine by an ex submariner, with visual and sound effects it was a real experience. The exhibition is new and well thought out.

This museum was on my wishlist. Finally i managed to visit it today. The survivor submarine from the WW II gave me an amazing experience. I learned about the naval job and how dangerous it was. Also i got a lot of informations how they lived and worked in the submarine. Truly unique! I respect their great job and what... More

seen submarines in films but was great to go inside one and see how the men live and work in there need suitable shoes as lots of things on floors to watch out for the men that have spent their lives working in submarines are there to tell you all about them.

Visited with adult children - all much more up market now (except the café) - tour round Alliance was good as were the many exhibits. Quality is evident in all the new areas - well worth a visit.
