This is a great place for all the family. Especially those with an interest in Southampton or the RMS Titanic. Plenty to keep the kids entertained; dress-up, interactive games.

Very well presented and well written information. Mr. Allcock (Allcock & Brown?) was most enlightening and ’knew his stuff’! Definitely worth a visit!

As the home port of Titanic, Southampton should have the best Titanic museum....You would think! Southampton City Council have missed an amazing opportunity here, there is so much potential for this to be absolutely brilliant but sadly it's a monumental disappointment. Grossly overpriced for mostly...More

As a bit of a Titanic geek I have been looking forward to visiting here for a while. It was enjoyable with some very interesting facts and really got across how the disaster affected Southampton.
