We had purchased an all inclusive Historic dockyard annual ticket through Amazon local earlier in the summer so decided to make a bit more use of it before the end of the school holidays. The museum is not very big in size but it packs so my much into the space that you cannot fail to be impressed. The cafe... More

We purchased an annual ticket at the Portsmouth historic Dockyard which includes the submarine museum. The tour inside HMS Alliance was fascinating and we were all interested to learn about life as a submariner from our guides on the submarine. There are a huge amount of artifacts and interesting items in the museum and lots of interactive displays for the... More

This was a great day out, we did not expect to spend as much time as we did there. The guided tour on Alliance was very interesting and we enjoyed talking to the guides and listening to interesting stories from when the guides were serving. The cafe served good homemade food, proper baked potatoes and homemade cakes, plus other sandwiches... More

This attraction is not in the dockyard complex in Portsmouth. You have to go either out of Portsmouth and drive all the way to Gosport or take the ferry bus to Gosport from Portsmouth dockyard complex. It can be confusing as it is not very clear. On the first day I got to Portsmouth I tried to take the Ferry... More

As part of our ticket for the Historic Docks, we visited the Submarine Museum. This was accessed by regular boats to and from the Historic Docks in Portsmouth, but could be visited by car. This is a very interesting museum, which comprises of a tour of HMS Alliance, a second world war submarine. Also in a building on the site... More

Fantastic place to visit. The museum has one of the oldest submarines in the world. Children will love the exhibits and they can try out different things. Food is cheap and very nice. The main submarine brought back some memories of when I was in the services. and not the navy. Definitely a worth while visit. Well recommended. I haven't... More

An interesting couple of hours was spent here watching videos, walking around museums and most impressively walking through HMS Alliance - a chance to experience what it would have been like for 60 men to love in a steel tube under the sea. An eye opener if you are basing your view on movies you have seen.

Part of the Historic Dockyards package, this museum, adjacent HMS Alliance, is well worth two hours or more. It details the history of submarine warfare... and the exhibits and activities warrant careful attention. We particularly enjoyed the scale models of submarine vessels since their first deployment, the cutaway of the mini submarine, the periscope view of Portsmouth Dockyards... and the... More
