Portsmouth Museum and Art Gallery is home to a huge variety of exhibitions that explore the city’s rich and varied history.

No Place Like Pompey explores what’s special about the UK’s only island city, whilst Portsmouth at Play celebrates the myriad ways in which recreational habits have changed over the years. There’s also Football in the City, covering Portsmouth FC’s importance to many city residents, and The Story of Portsmouth – which offers a glimpse into home lives through the ages.

Here you will also find information on the two art gallery spaces that showcase the city’s fabulous art collections.
