  • Nice place to visit. Car park next door only allows 2 hours though. This meant we didn't have time to use the cafe sadly....
  • Visited for the wildlife photographer of the year exhibition. Great they had a children's area for colouring and booms so adults could look at the photos.
  • A real hidden gem. Great Titanic exhibition. And the building itself is cool. Make sure you visit the toilets.
  • We took an autistic individual who had an amazing time until a member of staff told us we would have to leave after our individual became loud due to excitement about his new teddy in the gift shop. Once his process was interrupted he became upset and was then told by keith (staff) that they were going to call the police this caused more distress. The staff were very rude and not at all understanding even after being informed he was autistic and staff were doing their best to resolve the situation and get him to exit.
  • More advertising needed to let people know it's there. Some interactive exhibits didn't work or not at all. It was informative and good on how the story was told
