About Portsmouth City Museum

The Portsmouth Museum explores different aspects of Portsmouth's rich and varied history. The birthplace of novelist Charles Dickens and fictional detective Sherlock Holmes (conceived of here in Portsmouth by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) each have been featured in exhibits within the museum. 

No Place Like Pompey is a more permanent exhibition, focusing on the idea of what makes Portsmouth unique. This exhibition looks at the city's geography, its past and its people, in the UK's only island city. Ringed by forts on both land and sea, its history had been shaped by its relationship with the Royal Navy and Dockyard. This fascinating exhibit takes a broad view over what has shaped and changed Portsmouth as a city. 

Portsmouth at Play and Living in Portsmouth are exhibits showing the story of Portsmouth, from the 16th century through to modern living. 

Picture Gallery highlights the world of the Public Catalogue Foundation's work in cataloguing all of the oil paintings held in public collections in the UK. A selection of paintings from Portsmouth's collection is on display. 

With free parking (on non event days) available on site and free admission, Portsmouth City Museum provides insight into the history of Portsmouth and its people at rates affordable for all.
