Had a great time. Plenty to see. Just a shame it's closing as it's being moved into the Dockyard alongside all the other attractions. Looking forward to seeing the new Museum when it opens.

Visited a week before it closed. Lovely building and a very interesting museum. It is a long wait until the enlarged museum opens in Portsmouth Dockyard in 2020.
