It is not possible to display everything in the Maritime Museum. To view more of Southampton`s unique maritime collections, from menu cards to marine engines, you can visit the Collections Management Centre. Here, all different sorts of objects are looked after to give an insight into the social and industrial past of Southampton. A study room and library will help you to carry out your own research, but you need to make an appointment to visit. Specialist curators are available to answer specific enquiries.
