This museum contains a fascinating Titanic exhibition including a video of survivors and locals talking about the disaster, plus the ornate panel Honour and Glory Crowning Time from Titanic's sister ship Olympic, Captain Smith's sword and a crew member's pocket watch which stopped when it met the icy North Atlantic waters.
Elsewhere in the museum, you will find a fleet of model ships from Southampton's past, White Star souvenirs and evidence of the museum's earlier history - Built just after 1400 it was used to store wool before export to Flanders and Italy.
