Recently visited with my young grandchildren . They loved the museum especially anything they could interact with. It gave a really interesting history of the navy all very well presented with some quirky things added to. We didn't have time to go onto any of the big attractions so just had a stroll which was still fun and great for children to let off some steam. The Queen Elizabeth happened to be in which made my day.

We've been to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard twice now have finally covered it all! The ship tours are the highlight (be sure to get an audio guide if available) but don't miss the harbor boat tour too. Be advised that the Mary Rose is not included in the ticket price, but is also well worth it. The price is a bit expensive, so look around online for discounts and coupons! Nice to pack a picnic lunch, but a cafeteria is also available.

You can see two old navy ships inside - HMS Victory and HMS Warrior. There are couple of other wreaked ships from world war 2. The view of the bay from the museum building is quite great.

We bought an annual pass and went twice and we still didn't do it all. The Victory with their excellent audio tour is worth the money on its own. However there many other things to see. We did The Warrior, battle of jutland and the harbour tour. There is plenty to and the varied activities will keep everyone entertained. Get the annual pass as there is too much to see in a day!
