Having visited previously some 10 years ago I was really impressed with the vast improvement of the museum which has had the benefit of some funding. It is great that after your introduction to the submarine you are left to walk through at your own pace and get a feel for what life is like on board. The volunteers are... More

had visited the museum a long time ago but has recently had a refit. Great experience to be able to see and walk through a submarine and see how small each space was. The interactive section was a little poor and i think it has seen better days but the main museum and sub were excellent worth a visit

The definite highlight of this museum, a guided tour by an ex submariner through a decommissioned sub. It really brought to life what they went through defending this country. The rest of the museum was good, with a lot of hands on things for the kids upstairs. Definitely worth a visit

30 years ago I last visited this museum, thankfully time has served it well. Worried we'd be stuck for things to do before our alloted tour of the main submarine I needn't have worried, in fact if anything an hour almost wasn't enough. Masses of things to pull and press for children of all ages plus a very impressive historical... More

We visited the submarine museum whilst staying with friends locally. Being a predominantly male group I have to admit it was their choice not mine. However it was a very enjoyable trip involving a traditional museum explaining the history & a beautifully restored little sub. The crowning glory being a decommissioned sub. The guided tour by an ex submariner mr... More

Trying to find a negative about this visit but can't! The star of the show is HMS Alliance and she is a real star. The tour was great with 'hands on' for children, and a real learning curve of how these mariners used to live below the sea. Our tour guide was once a mariner which made the tour even... More

Listen to the old timer that take you round the sub, the stories they come out with will keep you amused. Good value for money as the whole place is interactive with children.

I reviewed the museum a few months ago in the summer and it was really busy and difficult to negotiate exhibits with all the visitors and excited youngsters distracting my attention. During that visit the submarine guide mentioned during the winter months they operate a guided tour instead of the free flow system (which is due to the high visitor... More
