Don't miss the Titanic exhibition

The Fascinating Story of the R.M.S. Titanic

DON'T MISS THE CHANCE TO SEE THE FASCINATING STORY TOLD BY MANY OF THE EXHIBITS IN THE TITANIC COLLECTION.

The Shipwreck and historical artefacts on display in the centre are the largest private collection of this type on public display in Europe.

Brought together over the last 45 to 50 years, it forms the basis of one of the most unusual and interesting collections open to the public.

There are countless items from a bygone age as well as artefacts from over 150 shipwrecks.
 
The many and varied exhibitions reflect village life in Charlestown, it's history, shipwrecks and the once thriving China Clay industry. The exhibition shows a tremendous range of maritime history dating back to 1715 and one of the largest underwater diving equipment collections in the country, including various suits used for treasure seeking and naval purposes.
