A really enjoyable museum, with interesting exhibits, friendly staff and offering a great way to spend a few hours in Portsmouth at no cost!. Loads of information about the local areas and all its history. I really enjoyed the Study in Sherlock and the Portsmouth Football club items on display. The gaming console exhibition will also be popular with young and old gamers. The shop has a wide range of items well priced and a great place to pick up a nice souvenir of your visit to Portsmouth.
