The museum is a little out of the centre of Portsmouth but well worth a visit. Looks to be wheelchair friendly and lifts within the building. Car park is a short walk from the museum and is £2 for 3hrs

I visited this museum with my 6 year old grandson. There are plenty of displays and interactive events. The assault course outside was also very popular.

Visited as a group and found the experience very interesting. There much history and for once I loved the souvenir shop. It is not an obvious destination for tourists I think but I would thoroughly recommend taking time out to visit.

Apart from the building itself which is magnificent piece of architecture.The exhibition inside has so much history, one visit is not sufficient.

The museum closes at the end of March - to be located within the historic Portsmouth Naval Dockyard. It will be 2020 before it re-opens so this is now literally your last chance to see the museum in its historic barracks setting. I strongly advise...More
