Welcome to The Box


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.

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