The Box

The Box is Ply­mouth’s award-win­ning muse­um, art gallery and archive.

A place where heritage meets contemporary art and archives meet interaction. A museum, gallery and archive. A Kitchen & Bar. A shop. A space for research. A place that you can make your own, and where there's always something new to discover.

The Box brings six outstanding collections of art, human history, natural history, film, photography and archival material together, showcased in a series of exciting spaces.

Our current exhibitions include Yinka Shonibare CBE RA's thought-provoking 'End of Empire' sculpture (until 16 Jun), major multi-screen film commission 'John Akomfrah: Arcadia' (until 2 Jun) and nationally touring art exhibition, 'Beyond the Page: South Asian Miniatures and Britain, 1600 to Now’ (until 2 Jun).

Our ‘Planet Ocean’ exhibition runs throughout 2024 and explores our enduring relationship with the sea and how we can protect it in the face of the climate crisis.

Talks, family activities, live music and special events are also on offer throughout the year.

The Box's standard opening hours are 10am-5pm Tuesday to Sunday and selected bank holidays.
