Here is a place to discover the story of transport and offer inspiration for the designers, innovators and engineers of the future. Your favourite stories and objects are waiting for you.
Most of our galleries remain open to enjoy but where we can’t guarantee social distancing these will remain closed for now.
Our Land, Sea and Sky galleries have reopened. To keep you and our staff safe we will be managing the number of visitors in the galleries at any one time and we have introduced a new one-way flow system. Remember to keep a safe distance from others inside the galleries and use hand sanitising stations dotted throughout.'
We ask you not to touch objects in our exhibition galleries in order to keep you, and them, safe. For now, access to our trains and trams is restricted so please don’t climb aboard.
Our Visitor Team will be on hand throughout the galleries to answer your questions.
Here are some exhibitions you can look forward to on your visit:
Our Driven exhibition celebrates the ground-breaking achievements of road transport, from the familiar and famous to the unusual and unexpected. You’ll discover stories of some of our local heroes of engineering and racing, their feats of innovation and endurance.
This detailed and poignant exhibition details the early development of Titanic and her sister ships from her design and build by local shipyard workers to her launch in 1912. Learn what life was like for passengers and crew, and feel the excitement of the crowds who gathered to see the world’s largest vessel embark on its maiden voyage.
