Permanent Galleries

Take a journey through time, dive into our collections and explore creativity in Plymouth and beyond.

Journey through time and experience the development of the Port of Plymouth – understand the people who made it their home and the Mammoth creatures who roamed the pre-historic landscape. Travel the world in 100 Journeys and get to know those who boarded the Mayflower in 1620.

Take time to explore creativity in Plymouth and beyond in Our Art or find your calling as the BBC’s next newsreader in the Media Lab.

Dive into our collection and find out more about your family, your street, and your city in Active Archives and be wowed by the Figureheads, each with their own story to tell of life at sea.

All visits to The Box will be ticketed when we open. Find out more from our Plan Your Visit page.
