There is a wide range of activities and events for everyone to enjoy at Gosport Museum and Art Gallery.

Alongside exhibitions that showcase the very best of local and national art, we run a programme of talks, workshops, events and hands-on activities. Gosport Museum showcases the town's rich heritage, while the café offers a selection of locally-sourced food, drinks and light refreshments. We also run well-established and unique curriculum-linked science and history sessions for schools on site - you can find out more here

Play Gallery

Our wonderful Play Gallery is an interactive, sensory space for the under fives and their parents or carers. The Play Gallery is a first introduction to galleries for small children, focusing on colour, line, shape, and texture. There is also access to a quiet and private baby feeding space.

Every month from January 2023, Galleries for Beginners sessions will take place for the under fives in the Play Gallery with additional making resources and activities.
