(4.3/5 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.

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.

  • The ship space is located just outside the Centre of Inverness. Parking is available in front of the Museum hardly. We were lucky and could keep right in the driveway, providing space for three cars. The admission to the wild conglomeration is free. Donations are welcome but would be appreciated. Well, what can you say? The Builder and designer of the Museum is already a little crazy. A Messie of shipping and ardent fan of the Titanic and its history. In the home and in the yard there is a colorful mess. It is quite interesting to look at, more than half an hour we have not used but.

  • We had a good time to discover the passion of a true fan of the Titanic. The tour is free and very nice gentleman. If you're in the area, you can still visit him. Has been shifted for a visit of amazing pictures

  • We were only young adults, no children. We weren't sure if it was open, but went in anyways. Turns out it was open and free, accepting donations. The Titanic collection is truly impressive, from newsp...  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.
