Fantastic day out

This is a place for all the family with a great gift shop and coffee shop. Plenty of hand on displays and plenty to see visually too.

It is only 4 stars due to the fact that it was a wedding reception attended. However we were allowed on the first floor, where the info is, which parts are interactive. I have been on HMS Alliance before the revamp, it is eye opener to think men lived under the sea in it.

I'm sorry to see that this review is the first "Terrible" review this museum has, but it deserves it. We arrived after driving a long way through Gosport (which is an absolute dump of a town) and were told that it was guided tours only on the submarine. This was a complete surprise and totally unacceptable. Nowhere in their leaflets... More

Ample parking but a bit of a walk to the attractions for anyone not too mobile. For those who like a walk there is a path from the centre of Gosport that follows the harbour, goes past the old defences ond over Haslar Bridge. Lots of things to see on the way. The museum itself has very helpfull staff and... More

There are also 3 preserved submarines The Holland 1, HMS Alliance and X24 midget submarine. HMS Alliance is also open as a walk on... More

Gives a real insight into the lives of submariners in the days before nuclear submarines.The highlight of the visit is the opportunity to go onboard a real life (albeit retired) submarine and get a feeling of how it must have been to spend several weeks at sea on one of these things. The guides are all ex-submariners who are very... More

This is an excellent museum with a great selection of Submarines, from the preserved 'Holland 1' to a WW" diesel boat, and they even have a midget submarine. The staff are knowlegable and friendly, there is a boat that runs across to portsmouth to the historic dockyard, which was good fun as well

4 Adults and 3 Kids (ages 3 - 12) had a fantastic day out. Excellent facilities, friendly staff and of you sign up for gift aid you get a return visit. The submarine tour was so interesting although not for the claustrophobic! It gave an amazing insight into life as a submariner. Well worth a visit

We took the little boat across the water from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and then booked the tour of the submarine by an ex-serviceman with a twinkle in his eye. The old subs really were snug! There is plenty to see over the site and we started out by walking up to the torpedo buildings, which were quiet, and then working... More
