Visited this museum because of the Titanic disaster in 1912. Very interesting to read about the people and their lives & work aboard and to read who survived this ordeal. Nice shop to buy souvenirs to bring home.

This is a beautiful museum display in memorial to the Titanic disaster and it's devastating effects on the Southampton community. We'll done and comprehensive history of the seaport and it's connection to the greater marine community.

The museum is very interesting and has lots of interactive stations which are fun for all ages. Takes a few hours to get round whole site, and there is option to climb the clock tower, however this requires advanced booking. Staff all friendly and informative.

Would like to visit museum before or after cruise out of Southampton. Is there a place we can leave our luggage while we tour museum. Or is it possible to drag luggage around with us. Also how far is museum from RC cruise port?

The museum is about a 20 minute walk from the port. There is no place to leave your luggage but you could always ask the staff I found them very friendly.
