Ship Space, Inverness

4.0
#3 of 6 in Museums in Inverness
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.

  • A bit of a bizarre experience. Impressive replica of titanic in the garden built around 2 caravans?! Has to be seen to be believed. Other than that... Pics of the film stuck on the walls.... Can it really be classed as a museum?
  • Quirky and cool. Great change from corporate slick exhibitions. Try the Titanic fine dining experience,! Thumbs up to enthusiast owners.
  • Great place to shoot a horror movie
  • It was ok. Kids were pretty excited about it but only took 5 mind to get around and finish.
  • I didn't even go closer than 20 m. It looks awful from the outside. 2 stars because I did not see the interior.

Where to stay in Inverness

You’ll easily find bed and breakfasts and guesthouses convenient to the center of town in Inverness, from the cozy to more large-scale places, often with a view down to the River Ness, which later joins Loch Ness. For more affordable accommodation, look for a few budget hostels, as well as camping and caravan sites. If you've got a car, consider staying just outside the city in a quiet village, where you can explore the city by day and nature by evening. Since this is the largest city in the Highlands, you'll probably be able to find something last minute, but if you have a specific type of accommodtion in mind, it's a good idea to book in advance.
