Groups

Portsmouth Museum and Art Gallery is great for group visits, offering a range of exhibitions, displays and events to suit all ages and interests.

Self-guided group visits are completely free but must be booked in advance.

We recommend allowing 1 – 1½ hours for group visits.

To get everyone in comfortably and easily it’s recommended that no more than 60 visitors arrive together at any one time.

When visiting ‘Story of Portsmouth’, ‘Portsmouth at Play’ or temporary exhibitions, it is advisable to split into smaller groups of 15/20 within the museum to avoid overcrowding.

All groups wishing to attend our events must be pre-booked, and it may not be possible for groups to book places during our busiest events.

Car and minibus parking is available within the museum grounds. Museum Road (and the nearby St George’s Road) have designated coach parking bays, operated on a pay-and-display basis.

To book a group visit or for further information, email MVS@portsmouthcc.gov.uk or call 023 9283 4744 / 4737 (9am to 5pm Monday – Friday).
