This museum is very much like a tardis - it looks small and insignificant from the outside but there is so much inside it really is worth spending at least an hourbrowsing the exhibits.

We spent a very happy hour here. It was nice and quiet until a group of school children came in for about 15 minutes but it was good to see and hear their enthusiasm and energy! Lots to see of general interest.

Relive the history of the British Navy! Excellent displays and history from the past three hundred years. A must see if you have any interest at all in navy history, particularly, of course, the British navy!

Superb displays, audio-visual exhibits, knowledgeable staff, authentic display materials and (if available) a huge section of HMS Victory's top sail. Brilliant, educational and evocative.

We visited this as part of our visit to the historic dockyard. We had about two hours but only managed the ground floor. The Nelson exhibition was particularly good and full of information we didn’t know. Very well worth the visit.
