Huge cash boost for Wilkinson Eyre’s Titanic museum

Wilkinson Eyre has won £4.5 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for its Titanic museum scheme at Southampton

The £15 million cultural project is on target to complete in 2012, in time for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking.

Southampton’s grade II listed magistrates court will be refurbished to house the proposed ‘Sea City’ museum, which features 4,000 items related to the Titanic.

The practice is working on the scheme with engineers Gifford, and Urban Salon – who are designing interactive education displays.

Southampton council recently backed down on controversial plans to fund the museum by selling city-owned art, including works by sculptor Auguste Rodin and painter Alfred Munnings.
