Full Description

● Marvel at the magnificent Titanic 1:10 scale model which size allows you to go inside and explore the Parisian cafe’, the bridge and the Marconi wireless room.  
 
● Get claustrophobic in the sphere of the replica Nautile submarine, one of the mini submersibles that dives 3 miles down to the Titanic. 
    Send an SOS on the Marconi wireless and hear the awesome roar of the Titanic’s fog horn.
 
● Peruse the many images of the Titanic in the main building and view art deco ship posters of the era.
 
● Step on board and bait some creels on the Guiding Star,a West Coast creel fishing boat which was the last built at Inverness’s Thornbush slipway.
 
● Find things to see and do in the 10 ton steel wheel house of the Achieve fishing trawler from Fraserburgh’s east coast.
     Try on a survival suit - see how quickly you can do it.   
●  Climb aboard a full-scale replica of the Star Of Hope, the first Herring Drifter from Buckie.

●  Explore a 45ft Watson class ex RNLI lifeboat that originally saved 58 lives. Dress up and pretend to be a captain, explore inside a life raft and much more!
