Model Railway Exhibition
We have a fantastic model railway exhibition. It is based on an Irish docks scene with (naturally) CIE locomotives,
The Prisoners’ Dock
It will give you a first-hand impression of the Museum as it used to be, a church of worship, a Mariners Church
The Baily Optic
Come and view the actual optic as depicted by James Joyce in ‘Ulysses’ (and weighing in at almost 10 tonnes!)
We have created a radio room complete with vintage Marconi radio stations. Come in and send a message in Morse Code
The Titanic Artefact
A great story of how we have (seemingly) an artefact from the RMS Titanic. Plenty of twists and turns..
Captain Halpin Exhibition
The Halpin exhibition has three strands, the man himself and his uniform, the ship he commanded.
In memory of those who lost their lives in Irelands greatest maritime disaster

How did they put the ships into all the bottles? View the Titanic exhibit, the re-created Radio Room, the Royal Navy Prisoners' Docks and the War Memorial. Come try out the electrified steam engine, learn how to lift heavy weights, tie sailors' knots & even take a selfie with a Pirate! The heroes and villains at sea all have a place in the gallery.
