A most informative and moving exhibition that brings alive the tragedy of 1912. It is not suitable for younger children but fascinating for everyone else. My only criticism is that the handwritten letters are impossible to read in the dim lighting. A printed transcript would...More

Titanic expedition was very interesting but spoilt by a school party who had a very loud teacher! Look out tower and below water the best bits for us. Car parking is pay and display and you dont know how long you need.
This museum is spacious, well designed, with lots to see. The Titanic exhibition which is on at the moment, is excellent.
Lots for children to do, the family ticket is good value.
Has a biggish cafe, but the shop was poor.
