Welcome to The Box


All our staff and volunteers are keeping their face coverings on for now and we encourage you to do the same. We’re still working hard to keep you safe and you can find more information on our Plan Your Visit FAQs page. From 3 August, you'll no longer need a ticket to visit us, unless you'd like to visit the 'Mayflower 400: Legend and Legacy' exhibition.

Woman and child investigating gallery

We are 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.
