Around the corner from Battleship Cove, this museum does not get mutch attention, but is very interesting. They have one of the largest collections of Titanic memorabilia more »
Is it a maritime-heritage museum? A mechanical-engineering museum? An art-history museum? A Titanic museum? A Steampunk lover’s dream? A paean to the Floating Palaces of the Gilded Age? A good place..... more »
This place is awesome. Reasonably priced, my kids loved spending hours here and still weren't ready to leave. Worth it for the views and the water alone. Great experience, friendly staff, fun museum.
Cute place you get to view the smaller versions of the larger ship including a titanic exhibit
