My partner took me here on my birthday. Took an hour to look round the indoor and outdoor areas. Particularly enjoyed all the old photos of the Caledonian canal and exploring the old lifeboat. A fantastic museum that seems to be forever evolving. A credit...More

I had identified this as an interesting place to visit, but despite saying it was open every day, and giving no warning about temporary closure on the website, when we tried to visit, it was closed (no sign even on the door).

Initially disappointed, as soon as you start exploring the place you discover the great passion that pushes this man in giving body to his passion for the sealife and the Titanic in particular. A spectacular exhibition of his craftsmanship, ability and vision, bridging the passion...More

Glad they loved the game. It is not a “nightmare”. Many other families have had no issue. These comments are very exaggerated. Of course reasonable precaution should be taken with young children, but this is the case anywhere. There's not trip hazards everywhere. There's not...More
