Our vision is to transform the existing museum and art gallery on North Hill into a new, unique visitor attraction. Showcasing Plymouth’s rich and colourful history, as well as hosting ground-breaking exhibitions, musical compositions and performances, The Box will be a venue of international significance. 

The Box is expected to open for the Mayflower 400 commemorations in spring 2020 and will bring together the collections of Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery; the Plymouth and West Devon Record Office; the Local History Collections of the Central Library; the South West Film and Television Archive; the South West Image Bank, and some of the Naval Heritage Centre collections in Devonport, with a curated, contemporary programme complemented by rich academic research, from the University's Peninsula Arts.
