Southampton to build new museum of TITANIC proportions

In Museum [Insider], Museums, new content on September 13, 2009 at 12:04 pm

Southampton City Council are to build a new museum on the site of their present magistrates court and police station which will tell the story of the city’s maritime and naval history. But rather than dwelling on the comings and goings of ships and boats over the centuries, the story will be dominated by the ill-fated ship, Titanic. Many of the souls lost at sea on the ship were staff and crew members from Southampton, a fact sometimes overlooked when interpreting the story. A similar exhibition, with private money, is also being planned in Belfast, where the ship was built.

There’s a piece about the planned museum and news of who’s working on the project on Museum [Insider].
