Ship Space, Inverness

(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Experience a slew of maritime wonders at Ship Space, featuring displays of submarines, fishing boats, lifeboats, and much more. The incontestable highlight is the 1:10 scale Titanic model, where you can walk inside and discover the Parisian cafe, the bridge, and the Marconi wireless room. Don't miss the chance to use the booming fog horn. You can also enter the Nautile replica submarine and experience just how cramped the vessel is, or dress up as a captain and play the hero as you navigate the Watson-class lifeboat that saved 58 lives. Ship Space is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Inverness Edition.

  • This is awesome - one guy's total passion. Fascinating snippets of info on the titanic and memorabilia - the kids loved it. It is homespun in the best possible way.  more »
  • Oh dear, maybe because it was wet and raining but this was a pretty dire experience. Obviously the owner has a great passion for the titanic and there was lots of trivia and memorabilia but I'm afraid...  more »
  • quite fun to go to, rather interesting dvd to watch, the model of titanic in the back is neat as are the other ships. all in all it was a really good place to go to.  more »

  • What a wonderful wacky place. Must not be missed. Fantastic job by the owner.
  • Words cannot do it justice. One man's obsession with maritime tat and Titanic curios provide a homemade museum experience in eccentric British style. And it's free. Loved it.
  • I didn't like it at all more ever there is no connection with Titanic what so ever so please don't be confused. However if you are visiting the Caledonian Canal which is a wonderful river side where you can see see few ships then you may visit this Ship Space.
  • Don't let it's disarrayed and unkempt appearance fool you, this is a great little museum. It's completely built and managed by one guy, so you must forgive it for being a little untidy here and here. Also consider that it's completely built from nautical salvage and donations; the man who runs it, lives and breathes non-profit. And absolute great find to see if you're ever in Inverness!
  • Although appearing ramshackled from the outside this was an absolute treasure of a museum. Thoroughly enjoyed wandering around, looking and playing with the exhibits. Would highly recommend to anyone and will definitely be back to visit next time I'm in the area.
