The Box (Plymouth)
The Box is a major new cultural and heritage attraction. With a series of amazing permanent galleries filled with objects, you’ll be able to discover the city’s human history, natural history, art, media, photographic and archive collections.
You won’t be able to miss the striking naval figureheads, all lovingly restored. Once built to adorn the bows of naval warships, these icons of maritime history are suspended in a huge sweep in The Box’s main entrance.
One of the first exhibitions at The Box will be ‘Mayflower 400: Legend and Legacy’, a major show that explores the myths and uncovers new meanings connected to the Mayflower’s epic journey in 1620.
