About us

The Box is a museum, gallery and archive where groups can discover more about Plymouth and its place in the world. We’re a venue where a life-sized mammoth rubs shoulders with naval history, where archival film footage is shown alongside cutting edge contemporary art, and where you can have lunch under giant ship’s figureheads. Join our experts and curators to learn more about our fascinating collections and how we built The Box. With prices starting from £50, we can promise you an unforgettable experience.
