The SeaCity Museum offers an in depth experience into the people that lived in Southampton and sailed on the doomed maiden voyage of the Titanic. The presentations are very detailed and offer a lot of interesting information. The section with the court room and videos offered food for thought. This was a very nice Museum to visit. There is also... More

A little disappointed. I did learn how the Titanic sinking impacted many of the city of Southampton, but almost nothung in terms of exhibits from Titanic, actually none were from Titanic. If you wish to hear the story, then I recommend it, if you wish to see exhibits, do not go. The children will be bored.

The main exhibit is the section on R M S Titanic and the fact that most of the crew who did not survive came from the City . In the space available its not possible to compete with the exhibition the exhibition in Belfast which I have also visited . I was a little disappointed at the lack of actual... More

We were in Southampton at Easter & not much was open. Luckily the SeaCity Museum was as we wanted to see the Titanic Exhibition which was both quirky and tragic. Loved the facts about the items taken, like 4 cases of straw hats! But the story of people was really sad but wonderful, as the ship sailed from Southampton there... More

The museum is very interesting and has lots of interactive stations which are fun for all ages. Takes a few hours to get round whole site, and there is option to climb the clock tower, however this requires advanced booking. Staff all friendly and informative.

We visited thanks to a free family ticket for local residents when Sea City opened. The exhibits and display of the Titanic story as part of Southampton's heritage were excellent. But we haven't been back since, or gone with friends visiting the area, because it is too expensive for a family of 4 or 5. Such a shame; SCC, if... More

As someone who used to work on cruise ships, I was interested in seeing the 'Port Out, Southampton Home' exhibition (ends 4th June). It was excellent, some great mementoes of the golden age of cruising and the fall and rise that brings it to where it is today. The permanent exhibit details Titanic's links with Southampton, spine-tingling stuff even after... More

Very many interesting exhibits enhanced by videos. I particularly enjoyed the evocative Titanic displays and the huge screen showing the enquiry into the disaster. The floor map really brought home the disaster that affected Southampton, showing as it did, where in Southampton many of the people lived.

Having lived in Southampton most of my life I thought my family should find out a bit of history of the city. The tour was 1 hr and at £6 good value. The guide talked about the war time bombing of Southampton and how the tower was constructed. The climb up a spiral staircase to a landing on every level... More
