Discover the ship that changed the world.

The current crisis is having a huge impact on us as a charity. We continue to look after the SS Great Britain and collections on behalf of the nation despite losing most of our income. Please support us by buying a ticket to visit later or donating. Thank you.

We are hoping that we will be able to reopen to the public as soon as possible, and will make sure everyone knows when that will be. In the meantime, drop by our outdoor photography exhibition and café kiosk on Brunel Square.
