This museum is free to enter (donations welcome!) and documents a phenomenal amount of info on Titanic, Lusitania, World Wars 1 & 2 and much more. We ran out of time after 2 hours but could easily have spent longer!

You can spend some time here with all its exhibitions (check out the Lusitania and the Battle of the Atlantic sections). Lovely dockside waterfront cafe and a fab shop for all the vintage stuff ..... love it.

This is a brilliant place to visit. There is so much to see and learn! There are 4 floors packed with various historic themes. I was most interested in the Titanic which I knew a fair bit about but this really did show much detail...More

It is in the same building with Slavery museum, it contains some naval history and some small ships inside. Good for passionates, about 2-3 hours should be enough.

What a great place to visit and free too - families and couples alike would love this venue - loads of information about the Titanic and the Lusitania - brings home to you the human side of these disasters

Lots to see and interact with. The slavery museum is within this museum and is well worth a visit and of course it’s free!

The “Untold story of the Titanic” is probably the highlight of this museum. It’s very good but not to the standard of the exhibition in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Various marine disasters are highlighted and there is a large section on World War Two.

there's plenty of interactive exhibits, plus the usual hidden item trail you get in museums. not sure about crafty things as I wasn't really looking for them, but there should be plenty to keep them entertained
