The Port Out, Southampton Home exhibition at the SeaCity Museum is based on rarely seen items from the City’s Maritime Collection, including furniture & fittings from the Mauretania, Queen Mary & Q.E.2 as well as ship models, posters, menu cards & souvenirs from the great liners that called Southampton home.

We are offering a rare chance to hear all about the work that went on behind the scenes setting up this exhibition in a talk by Maria Newbery, the curator, who will give an illustrated talk about selecting, conserving & displaying all the items on show.

You then might like to have a coffee in the SeaCity Cafe & see the exhibition itself. The entrance fee for the exhibition is £3.50 for adults & £2.50 for concessions & is not included in the price of the talk.

This talk is open to SDFAS & FoSMAG members, visitors & friends. Places are limited. If you would like to come, please let us know via the "Contact Us" page on this site.

This talk is free to students & under 25's but you still need to book a place.
