Welcome to The Box


We're a major new museum, art gallery and archive for Plymouth and the South West. We are proudly led by Plymouth City Council and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England and many more.

We are open 10am-5pm Tuesday-Sunday and Bank Holidays with free entry and can't wait to welcome you soon. You don't need to book a ticket, unless you'd like to see our major 'Mayflower 400: Legend and Legacy' (on display until 2 Jan 2022) or 'Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters' (on display until 27 Feb 2022) exhibitions or reserve a space in our Cottonian Research Room.

SAFETY FIRST: In light of the latest news updates about the COVID-19 virus, face coverings will be mandatory if you're visiting The Box (unless you're exempt) until further notice. Your safety, and the safety of our staff, volunteers and suppliers, is our top priority. You can find more information on our Plan Your Visit FAQs page.
