Thanks for stopping by. We're Plymouth and the South West's major new museum, art gallery and archive - and we can't wait to welcome you for a visit.

Admission is free!

We're open from 10am-5pm Tuesday-Sunday and Bank Holidays. You don't need to book a ticket unless you'd like to reserve a space in our Cottonian Research Room.
