An interactive and evolving maritime museum with nautical artifacts, large model ships such as Titanic and submarines made from improvised recycled materials. The museum opened its doors to its first visitor on April 10th 2012, the 100th anniversary of the sailing of the RMS Titanic.
Limited car access is available right outside the building for drop off and disabled entry only. The two floors of the museum are accessible to narrow chairs as well as the outside grounds to see the boats. All entry into the boats are currently inaccessible to the disabled apart from the Titanic model's replica Parisian Café. For more detailed access information, please see the DisabledGo access guide
Groups welcome. If you're arriving by bus let us know ahead of time and we'll keep the lay-by clear for a bus. If your group cannot visit during museum opening hours it may be possible to arrange an out of hours visit. Please let us know what date and time you plan to visit and we'll advise if we're able to open for you. This isn't always possible, especially at short notice, so it's best to get in touch well in advance.
The nearest parking is available at Telford Street Retail Park. 500 yards away across the Muirtown Swing Bridge.
Is the museum mainly indoors or outdoors?
Around half is outside, as below:
The museum is both indoors and outdoors so you may like to bring waterproofs etc. There is a 2 floor indoor exhibition in the main building to keep warm and dry. To fully experience everything though you'll need to go outside as well.
However, most of the boats in the grounds outside can be entered to provide shelter and are very close to the main building so you are not far from getting out of any rain etcAre dogs permitted?
Yes, you may take your dog on a lead.
Do you travel to schools to talk with students?
No, not at this time.
