SeaCity Museum details...

For an interesting family day out visit SeaCity Museum, based at the heart of Southampton. The main area of the museum tells the fascinating story of the tragic sinking in 1912 of the White Star liner, and of the impact it had on Southampton.

Children will enjoy the fascinating 1:25 scale, interactive model of the ship, showing the intricate layout of the vessel. The Disaster Room describes the sequence of events from the time the Titanic struck the iceberg, to its sinking and the rescue of the passengers by the Carpathia.

A pocket watch, found on the body of a steward, shows the exact time it stopped! The Gateway to the World gives visitors an insight into the lives of the people who arrived and also left Southampton.

Some travelled as traders, some settled there, others arrived seeking refuge. Some merely passed through on their way to fight wars or flee persecution.

Find out who they were and where they came from. Digital touch-screens and hands-on activities invite families to interact and engage in exhibits and share their Southampton stories.

The Pavilion at SeaCity Museum is home to a rolling programme of special exhibitions, so there is always something new to see when you visit.

The Galley Cafe is a great place to stop for refreshments and make use of the free Wi-Fi. There is a busy calendar of events, particularly during school holidays.
