The Halpin exhibition has three strands, the man himself and his uniform, the ship he commanded, the Great Eastern, and the achievement in laying the first successful trans-Atlantic telegraph cable. Most of the artefacts in the display are part of “The Halpin Collection”, donated to the Museum by the Halpin family.
