Nous n'avons malheureusement pu passer qu'1h dans ce musée. Cela commence par une grande expo sur Conan Doyle, pas seulement Sherlock Holmes, mais aussi des détails sur le reste de son oeuvre. Très bien fait pour les collégiens et lycéens (et les touristes). Déco spéciale pour Halloween (bravo au personnel pour cela, cela rajeunit un peu le musée). Puis un peu d'industrie locale et des scènes d'intérieur à différentes époques. Prévoir 1h30 ou 2h pour bien en profiter.

I really enjoyed the whole experience in Portsmouth Museum and Art Gallery. Interesting showpieces of history and culture of Portsmouth. To be honest i expected to see many more things of this museum than 2 floors only. The staff was very kind and helpful. I highly recommend this museum and i will visit it again in the future!

I went to the Museum and Art Gallery today as a group of 3 people. I really loved it. I never even knew about this building before.It was not that busy at all and there was lots of art, models, interactive elements and more to see! The designs are set up really well with all of the information at the side of the displays.Each room seemed to have different genres or themes to explore. The Paintings they have there of the local area are fantastic pieces. I was also very interested in the Sherlock Holmes section and I did not think I would be! I've never read or watched anything Sherlock before but I really enjoyed learning about him.There is also a big section devoted to the local area through the ages which is great. You get to see different displays with models showing what each age was like. There is even sound effects from that age playing too.The section about the seafront through the ages was also interesting since I did not know about the local history of Portsmouth. I had a go on Laughing Jack, a Puppet in a box who laughed with glee. There was also a mini ball game that I put 5p inside and had a go on. I lost though but oh well. Was fun.One section near the exit shows sealife and birds from the local area with models and sound effect buttons you can press. Very cool. I got some nice pictures here.There is also a gift shop with lots of different items. From old fashioned kids toys, snacks/sweets, gifts showing off the local area, Books from the author of Sherlock Holmes, soft teddies and more!Near the Gift Shop is also a small cafe with a nice selection of food and drink on offer. I had a cup of tea with a sandwich. Very nice staff members served us at the cafe and gift shop.Finally there is also a leaflet collection board where you can find out about all of the different events that are happening in the local area.Basically I saw this building and its attractions as being like how a Tourist destination used to be like. Where it gives you the feeling of the local area. It introduces you to the history and provides a kind of rest stop too where you can get information before you go onto the next adventure.You know you want to visit the building and check it out, right ;)Free entry too! Visit and see what you think.
