Absolutely loved this place. The lady taking tickets and the genealogist were fantastic! We left the titanic tour up the road disappointed and full of unanswered questions which this tour covered and then some. See the FULL collection of Fr Brownes pictures along with genuine memorabilia from the titanic. Fantastic museum. A must see for sure, highly recommended!

I'm not a history buff but this was a really interesting experience. The kids loved the idea of finding their 'passenger name' on a different boat each. It was well laid out. The exhibitions were so interesting. Staff were so nice and knew their history well. Definitely worth a visit. Money well spent

This was a very well laid out museum with lots of reading about happenings in queens town and its waters, probably not much use for small children as they'll get bored easily, personally i was a bit disappointed not to see any details or pictures of the Manx herring sailing fishing boat the wanderer who were first on the scene...

Was looking forward to seeing The Maritime Museum again as I was there years ago, my partner and I were disappointed. It had changed to a museum all to do with the Titanic, interesting but not great. We were expecting to see something to do with old railway etc but nothing. We found the Stockless Anchor and the story of... More

The thing I enjoyed most was being given a Lusitania "Passenger Ticket" with the name Grace Chaffe Carroll and then finding her story as I walked along the displays. This Heritage Centre has a lot of information about Ireland history including the sinking of both the Titanic and the Lusitania. Very enjoyable 2 hours we spent there as we had... More

We asked locals if we should do this place or the Titanic museum. They said this one offered more than just the Titanic. And we were also told that the Titanic museum was more computer touch screens and less exhibits. We chose this one and were not disappointed. Upon arrival you are given an identity card and at some point... More

Well worth a visit despite the fact that the admission price is a bit saucy. It probably betters the Titanic exhibition which is also recommended.
