Cobh Museum is situated overlooking Cork Harbour. The exhibitions reflect the cultural, social and maritime history of Cobh and the Great Island. Formerly known as Queenstown, Cobh has a long maritime history and is known throughout the world for its association with emigration and was the last port of call for the RMS Titanic. The Museum holds the last written record for the RMS Titanic in the Pilot's Log book.
There is a small genealogical reference section in the museum where visitors can do their own family research.
The museum is a voluntary Museum. It is run as a Company Limited by Guarantee on a not-for-profit basis and is staffed by members of a part time Community Employment Scheme who work alongside a team of over 20 volunteers. The Company Secretary, Treasurer and Curator are also volunteers and give many hours of work to maintain the collection, oversee the conservation programme, and ensure the smooth running of the Museum and its service to visitors.
