Families stuck for something to do over the holidays can try lots of events at Portsmouth museums, including children's activities, model displays and a craft fair.Portsmouth City Council's museums, including Southsea Castle, Portsmouth Museum and Cumberland House natural history museum, are always great destinations for a day out. But during the summer holidays there are special events aimed at preventing those 'I'm bored' moans. They're either free, or have a small admission fee. 

Plus, look out for the pop-up D-Day Museum around town this summer. Here’s where it will be – follow The D-Day Museum Facebook page for updates.
