SeaCity Museum

SeaCity Museum is a new visitor attraction in the heart of Southampton’s city centre, adjacent to the City Art Gallery. SeaCity Museum consists of two wings of galleries, holding the permanent displays of ‘Gateway to the World’ and ‘Southampton’s Titanic Story’ and one temporary exhibition space in a newly constructed exhibition pavilion.

The museum – based in the West Wing of the Civic Centre – is located within Southampton’s Cultural Quarter within easy access of the railway station and city centre car parking and close to the city centre parks. The site, owned by Southampton City Council, became available when Hampshire Police moved to a purpose-built venue in March 2011 (the Magistrates’ Courts having been vacated in 2002). The overall aspiration was to deliver a museum with an estimated capital cost of £15million for the first phase of the project.

The attraction contains three main exhibitions:

- Gateway to the World

- Southampton’s Titanic Story

- Pavilion Special Exhibition (Ship to Shore from 8 February)

SeaCity Museum has a suggested last entry time of 3pm as we recommend that you allow 2 – 3 hours to fully enjoy your visit. Our last visitor entry time to SeaCity Museum is 4pm as the museum closes at 5pm.
