Titanic expedition was very interesting but spoilt by a school party who had a very loud teacher! Look out tower and below water the best bits for us. Car parking is pay and display and you dont know how long you need.
This museum is spacious, well designed, with lots to see. The Titanic exhibition which is on at the moment, is excellent.
Lots for children to do, the family ticket is good value.
Has a biggish cafe, but the shop was poor.
Some interesting exhibits, particularly Tony Bullimore who was rescued off coast of Western Australia and a family from Cornwall that spent 38 days lost at sea. During our visit they also had Titanic stories of some Cornish people impacted by the Titanic disaster.

The Museum is ok, not spectacular, but worth a couple of hours visit with children.

Premier Park, who run it, have a series of tricks to lead you being fined to the...More
