Went over to the museum via the water bus. HMS Alliance was amazing, full of history and the guides were very informative. Seeing the first Naval submarine Holland 1 was just as interesting. The museum holds many artefacts and there's activities for the children. Would...More

Single attraction ticket quite expensive, but nobody checks tickets anywhere so could just see everything for free. Do not let staff talk you into buying multi-attraction tickets on site as they're 20% less on line.More

The museum has many interesting facts and figures about these machines which look menacing in their coats of black paint and certainly are. It gives an insight into the conditions of life on board these craft for the crew which is cramped to say the...More

The museum is localized in Gosport, a small peninsular town a few minutes from Portsmouth by ferry. The city used to be part of the naval base of Portsmouth and is now live memory for the Second World War, with numerous museums and monuments. The...More
