In Person Visits Now Booking

The shoreline of Southsea, Portsmouth, UK is seen behind closeups of several people wearing headphones while listening, smiling, and gesturing during visits to the Museum of Portable Sound.

SOUTHSEA, PORTSMOUTH, UK — The Museum of Portable Sound is pleased to announce that it is officially back open for in person visits.

Based in Southsea, UK, it is easiest to book in person visits there. However, since the museum is portable, we are able to bring it along wherever our Director and Chief Curator travels.

If you are interested in booking an In Person Visit, please use our Contact Form to make arrangements.

Please note that In Person Visits in Southsea are subject to the same ticketing fees as our Online Visits.

In Person Visits in locations outside of Southsea are available but may require additional fees depending on the desired location. Contact us with any questions and we will be happy to discuss how we can bring our museum to you.
