We had an excellent afternoon here. Lot's of interesting displays and being able to go in the actual recovered submarine was fantastic! Great for adults and older children.

Visited the Museum for the second time in eight years. Got a shock at the entrance fee, £18 each. However the Alliance has been recently overhauled and nicely done out. Much better presentation than before but sadly the Guided tour presentation was not available. Offered a free visit on our tickets for October when the guided tour will be running.... More

I had a fantastic day here with my wife, who also thoroughly enjoyed herself. It was informative, fun and the opportunity to immerse yourself in living history was fantastic. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking to kill some time, or just relish is some submariner history.

We've all seen the movies. Submarines, the ping, ping, ping of the sonar, the cramped and confined conditions. Here you get to actually see what a submarine is really like. The exhibits are excellent and well thought out and the tour of the submarine is a real highlight. Well worth a visit!

All the exhibitions are fantastic and they include the X-craft, HMS Reliant and the Holland 1 etc. The tour of the Reliance was very good indeed and gives a glimpse of how those heroes struggled to survive.

I have seen all the attractions in the Portsmouth Dockyard, some several times, but I have never made the side trip to Gosport. From Portsmouth Harbour Station it is a pleasant and cheap trip on the Gosport ferry and a ten minute walk along the front at Gosport, past a pleasant marina to the museum. There is a free ferry...

As an ex submariner living in the area I was pleased to see the HMS Alliance wasn't in the state it was in the last time I visited her. It was also good to see that the Holland one was housed in a purpose built building. I was very surprised to see that the submarine museum was a shadow of... More

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.
