The Box

The Box is a museum, gallery and archive in Plymouth, Devon, England, opened in 2020 housing a collection of about 2 million items. The core of the building was previously Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery which closed in 2016. The building was created in 1907–1910 by Thornely and Rooke in Edwardian Baroque style.

The Box is open 10am-5pm Tuesday-Sunday and Bank Holidays. You don't need to book a ticket unless you'd like to reserve a space in our Cottonian Research Room.  Entry is free.  The Box welcomes official guide or care dogs on but unfortunately no other dogs are permitted inside The Box buildings.
