Explore the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery

Plymouth, Devon

An intriguing place to visit with nine permanent galleries, two exhibition galleries and hundreds of events and activities throughout the year.

This exciting regional museum has permanent galleries featuring objects from its world cultures, ancient Egypt, archaeology, maritime and local history, natural history, and fine and decorative art collections. 

These displays are supported by an ambitious exhibition programme, plus a varied and large-scale event programme that includes lunchtime talks, Art Bites tours, family-friendly holiday workshops, contemporary craft and creative writing workshops for adults, and a host of special events. 

Currently, the museum and art gallery are closed while The Box (a new development on the Plymouth History Centre) is under construction, but a new improved museum and art gallery experience is expected to open in 2020. In the meantime, several exhibits are currently "on tour" across the city; check the Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery site for more details!
