Tickets and Opening times

SeaCity Museum is open 7 days a week, 10am – 5pm including Bank Holidays.

Please be aware that during term time, school groups will be visiting from around 10am – 2pm. During this time the museum will be busy and noise levels are likely to be increased. For a quieter experience we recommend arriving after 2pm.

Find us at:

SeaCity Museum, Civic Centre, Havelock Road, Southampton SO14 7FY, opposite the BBC South studios.

Telephone: 023 8083 4536


We suggest that you allow between two and three hours to explore SeaCity Museum. We close at 5pm, so it’s best to arrive before 3pm so you can enjoy the full experience at your leisure. Unfortunately there will be no entry after 4pm. Before your visit, please check our luggage policy and how to get here on our Plan your visit page.
