The Plymouth History Centre is a major scheme in the heart of Plymouth, a symbol for Plymouth’s current regeneration and a museum for the future.
The vision is to transform the existing museum and art gallery on North Hill (which has existed since 1910) into a new, unique visitor attraction.
There are so many stories to tell. The History Centre will shine a light on them all and make them available to the people and visitors of Plymouth in a way that has never been seen before.
Plymouth has a rich and colourful history featuring pirates, pioneers and military might. Peppered with fascinating stories and larger than life characters, much of Plymouth’s great history has national significance well beyond the city’s boundary.
The History Centre is expected to open as the flagship building for the Mayflower 400 commemorations in spring 2020.
