We bring together arts, museums and archives to form a regional centre of excellence. We explore our understanding of the past and present, revealing the way Plymouth has shaped and been shaped by the rest of the world.
Please note that Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery is closed so development work for the History Centre can take place!
We offer learning opportunities throughout the museum, taking inspiration from our collections, displays and exhibitions.
