The large figurehead of a queen has gone and now hangs with others in the high open area over the reception, bar/cafe and shop at The Box combi museum/gallery/archive complex on Tavistock Place in the city centre across the road from the university. There was a suggestion a few years ago that quite a lot of the naval heritage centre collection was to be moved and incorporated there. It’s not clear whether that has happened. But we have been down to Devonport to check out the centre but couldn’t find any clear notices or indications of the present position.

Great visit, something for everyone, the submarine tour is one to remember. Some of the exhibits are very interesting.

The tour was well organised and ran for the full two hours. It was very informative, it is run by very knowledgeable volunteers. The tour took us around various parts of the submarine whilst both facts and stories of life onboard were shared. It was very enjoyable and initially I thought two hours was a long time but it flew past with so many questions being asked by the group. I only wish the tour were longer it was truly fascinating!

Travelled from Plymouth to visit the Centre only to be told it is only open on Wednesdays, and then only by appointment - not what the website says. Apparently the guided tours are good, and supposedly include a visit to the resident submarine, but not at the moment because the air conditioning wasn’t working. A big disappointment. Had the website contained up to date information we wouldn’t have wasted a morning.

It's hard to believe the tour is free (although obviously we gave a donation). It's all run by knowledgeable volunteers who are keen to share their experiences and passion. The museum areas were equally as fascinating as the submarine and our guide very amenable. The only constructive feedback would be that the submarine tour would benefit from being a bit longer if possible; it felt like we were being rushed through at times and missed some of the displays. I think most people would happily pay for a comprehensive tour which could help with the upkeep of the museums.
