In 1961 the Wool House opened as Southampton Maritime Museum and houses one of the finest collections of Maritime History in the world.

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. It was described in 1407 as the largest and strongest of all the merchant houses in the town.
