There are many nice ship models at the museum. The largest is of the Titanic that was used in a Barbara Stanwick. The Fall River Line was a line that ran between New York and Fall River in the steam era. It is very well presented here. A must see especially if you are already in Battleship Cove.

A nice add-on stop if you are visiting Battleship Cove. Make sure to ask for the discount if you purchase 'dual' tickets for both attractions at the same time. The museum is a relatively small with everything on a single floor. However, they pack quite a bit into the space with a focus on the historic Fall River Line.

Fun museum with our 5 year old grandson. We went on a free Friday and our grandson was fasinated by the Titanic. Unfortuanately, because it was free, parking was a problem although the police handled it nicely. It is not air-conditioned although they are working on installing this.

If you have any interest in the sea or... More

I liked that it was quiet. it's a good look at some of bygone travel vessels. They have a nice replica of the Titanic.

I went here a few times during my recent visit to the area. It is a fantastic old school type of museum with countless beautiful ship models, and other artifacts; all tastefully displayed. There was even a lecture about shipwrecks that I attended, and brought one of my diving helmets to. I think that this is a wonderful museum, which... More

Interesting maritime museum featuring Titanic, Fall River line, and a few other artifacts. Many models of historical ships (Bismark, Titanic, et al). One hour should do it. A tad pricey, but such is life.

The museum is just across the street from Battleship Cove and if you have an interest in going there you will like the Marine Museum also. They have an extensive collection of artifacts from the Fall River steamship line which carried passengers between the area and New York along with artifacts of the Titanic. They have a scale model of... More

I like Titanic stuff ... so it was interesting. Historical info. and items. Kids thought it was ok. If you are seeing the Battleship and looking for something else to do - stop in.
