  • Loved the museum! Lots of interesting stuff for kids and adults. The only disappointment was that we could visit the CSS Acadia. Apparently, it is open only on Tuesdays, 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm and Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10:30 to 4:30 pm. 🤷‍♀️ If you have a chance, jump on a group tour about the Titanic. Our guide was incredible! The most entertaining guided tour we ever had. Outside is a good kids' playground.
  • This place was such a cool find!! I need to start by saying the people who work here were fantastic, greeted you with a smile and so friendly!! I was excited to come and see the Titanic exhibit and didn't really know what else to expect from the experience. I ended up loving the entire museum start to finish. They have a few great spots in there for some fun photo ops and a little observation deck up top overlooking the gorgeous waterfront. Tickets were priced right and we even got to wish Merlin the parrot a happy birthday! Check it out if you are in the area.
