MV CORONIA - This specially built passenger ship started work in Scarborough in 1935 but was requisitioned during WW2. After the war she operated here until 1968 when she moved to Poole and was renamed Bournemouth Queen. She later worked in Scotland as Queen of the Scots and eventually ended up in the river Medway as Rochester Queen where she still lies. Our exhibition has lots of facinating stories and photos about her career.
Alongside this exhibition we have all our previous exhibition information in browser files alongside a well stocked reference library and archive of local history and maritime books & literature. (See our archives page here: Our Archives)
Our normal opening hours are 11am to 4pm, every Wednesday to Sunday inclusive.
Entrance is free.
We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
