The Royal Naval Submarine Museum

The Royal Naval Submarine Museum, Gosport

Discover the history of submarine development from the Ancient Greeks to the nuclear powered vessels of today. Start with a film show showing the history of the Submarine service then visit HMS Alliance, the centrepiece of the Museum. The submarine experience is brought to life on a tour of Alliance, enhanced by the first hand experience of ex-submariners guides, many who served on this class of submarine. You can then visit the Holland 1, the Royal Navy's first submarine and explore other subs as well as torpedoes, guns and missiles.

Inside the modern galleries there are lots of interactive exhibits, including periscopes, computer games and demonstrations of how submarines work.

There is a gift shop, picnic area and small cafe. The water bus stops at the museum and links it to Portsmouth or it's a 1km walk from the Gosport Ferry pier. There is also car parking.
