This is a nice, not spectacular, museum. We were with a tour group of twelve and most were disappointed to the point that the tour host refunded 75 percent of the cost of admission. On the other hand, my wife and I were delighted with...More

$79 Bucks for 2 adults and 4 teens would have upset me if it was just for Titanic... we really enjoyed the tour of the 1889 home. I love Titanic memorabilia and there were a few things that were neat. It wasn’t worth the price...More

Currently displaying a better than typical Titanic exhibit, the number of artifacts and quality presentation far exceeds the visit to the shipyards in Belfast Ireland. The exhibits from the Northwest are a quality curation, and visiting the restored Campbell house makes this a repeat attraction.

Lots of reading of posters about people that were on the titanic. Some artifacts, cool to see. But would have been worth a $10 admission not $18. Cameras not allowed.

We experienced no lines on a weekday. It’s not a large facility and the exhibit has been there for awhile. I think your only concern would be large school (elementary) tours. Don’t forget to tour the historic home. It... More
