Welcome to The Box


Happy New Year. The Box is 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.

Standard opening hours are 10am-5pm Tuesday-Sunday and Bank Holidays with free entry and we can't wait to welcome you soon. You don't need to book a ticket, unless you'd like to see our major 'Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters' exhibition (on display until 27 Feb 2022) 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.
