Plymouth Museums Galleries Archives is responsible for the development of The Box, Plymouth as well as the day-to-day operation of the Elizabethan and Merchant's Houses (currently closed for restoration work) and Smeaton's Tower lighthouse. The Box, Plymouth is currently under construction and is set to open in spring 2020. The project will transform the former Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, Central Library and St Luke's Church buildings into a major cultural attraction with permanent galleries, exciting exhibitions and an ambitious programme of events. The project will consolidate many of the city's most significant historic collections from the Museum and Art Gallery, Plymouth and West Devon Record Office, South West Film and Television Archive and South West Image Bank onto one site. While construction work is taking place a 'Museum On Tour' programme is taking exhibitions, events and community projects to a range of locations across Plymouth and beyond.
