To me a maritime museum means ships, equipment & sailors to man the ships. 80% of the museum's exhibits are models of ships from small to very large. The largest exhibit being the Titanic. Besides the ship which is probably 15 feet in length, one...More

A very nice facility. Some truly fantastic ships models. A great place for your kids to learn about how transportation and industry at as the 1800s turned into the 20th century

I am a History Major, therefore I must say that this place is too small to learn a lot. There aren't many exhibits, etc. The place takes minutes to see. There is really not much else I can say.

Very impressive! We enjoyed the colonial age ships and replicas. It's arranged in chronological order but didn't see where to start so we began on the wrong side. Maybe that could be explained or labelled. But the collection is very very good.

The famous large Titanic model detail can be enjoyed for more than a glance. Great little kids activity area without boredom for a long time. Although a sort of small museum, allow an hour or more with little ones. Very educational and great exhibits, especially...More

A nice add-on stop if you are visiting Battleship Cove. Make sure to ask for the discount if you purchase 'dual' tickets for both attractions at the same time. The museum is a relatively small with everything on a single floor. However, they pack quite...More
