SEA CITY MUSEUM, SOUTHAMPTON
The Southampton’s Sea City Museum greeted its first visitors in 2012. Its opening marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. The museum houses two permanent galleries. These cover the city’s Titanic connections as well as the story of Southampton's seafaring past. The displays include a climb-aboard replica of the liner and some 4,000 items from the ship.
Sea City Museum was supplied with 90 display cases. All came with gallery-white laminated anti-bandit glass, passive humidity control and fibre optic lighting.
The project’s biggest challenge was to build a showcase for the RMS Queen Mary replica. The 1-ton model is seven meters long and is the largest in the Gateway to the World gallery.
