Cafe and garden

Please note, the cafe will be closed until 25 August. Please see our Covid-19 FAQs for full details of our re-opening.

Our wonderful café is open Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 4.30pm. It serves a delicious selection of hot and cold snacks, as well as tea, coffee and homemade cakes.

It’s the ideal place for a relaxing lunch or a place to rest after walking around the museum. During the summer months you can also take advantage of our large museum garden and eat al fresco in the sun.

The Garden at Portsmouth Museum and Art Gallery is a hidden haven. Children can enjoy playing on the grass, or make use of the play area – with slide and hideaway.

There are benches to enjoy lunch or a rest, and a number of outdoor games are available from the museum reception.
