The Box

Due to the coronavirus, museums and galleries across the country may have adjusted their opening times, or you may have to book a timed ticket in order to visit. Please check their websites and social media channels for up to date information.

Tavistock Place

The Box is a new cultural and heritage complex that completely transforms, extends and combines the original City Museum, Art Gallery and Central Library buildings and restores St Luke’s Church, to create new galleries, a striking elevated archive, learning and research facilities and the first public square to be built in Plymouth since 2004, forming the largest museum, art gallery and archive centre in the South West of England. The Box will open in spring 2020 as part of Plymouth’s major Mayflower 400 commemorations, and will also be renowned for its engaging and highly immersive exhibition programme. The programme will integrate the contemporary and the historic to bring the past to life through the present. It will showcase international visual arts and media, as well as Plymouth’s rich heritage through ambitious touring exhibitions, new commissions and the city’s permanent collections.
