About us

Where art, history, ideas and experiences come to life.

Our vision

Reimagining the future through the past.

Our mission

The Box is a social space for people, art, ideas and experiences. We preserve the city’s cultural collections and share extraordinary stories to explore the pressing issues of our age.

From our home in Plymouth, we nurture and support individuals to be creative and curious about the world around them, exploring the past in order to imagine new futures.

We seek to be a sustainable cultural organisation for the 21st century.

Our values

  • Connected – we are committed to inclusion and thrive through collaboration. We connect people, places, ideas and collections.
  • Progressive – we are ambitious and seek to be an exemplary cultural organisation, developing new ideas and ways of doing things.
  • Curious - we enable creativity and learning to ignite imagination and inspire change.
  • Relevant – we work with others to generate an engaging and accessible offer for our communities, particularly those for whom The Box is new.

A visit to The Box is an incredible experience. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
