Shipwreck & Heritage Center St.Austell Reviews
Museum about Shipwrecks, including Titanic Jul 15, 2010
This is quite a small museum from the outside, but its absolutely packed with exhibits, so that every nook contains some treasure found in real shipwrecks and information about the history of recovery of shipwrecks. Its also formed in such a way that you get the feeling of being inside a real, wooden ship.
They also have an extensive collection of exhibits from the original Titanic as well as from the famous movie. I was pretty excited to unexpectedly seeing the "Heart of the Ocean" when I turned a corner.
I think this museum is more fun with children, unless you are a real shipwreck enthusiast, but it was informative and small enough not to become boring.
