SS Great Britain: From launch to 're-launch'

23 October 2013

An exciting discovery talk at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall about Brunel's transatlantic liner.

In building SS Great Britain Brunel successfully combined and adapted the very best of cutting-edge technologies to create the world’s first transatlantic liner – a true wonder of the Victorian age. 


This illustrated talk by Ian Caskie tells the ship’s remarkable story from her original design through the different phases of her working life.

It also describes her incredible salvage and return to Bristol in 1970, and finally her restoration, preservation and ‘re-launch’ as a multi-award winning museum.

Lecture £9.50 (Members £8.50), with two course buffet £19.50 (Members £17.50).
