When the ss Great Britain was launched in 1843 first screw-propelled, ocean-going, iron-hulled steam ship, as well as the largest in the world. Brunel’s ship was the forerunner of all modern shipping.

Visitors to the Dockyard Museum can discover the history as everything from a luxury liner to coal carrier. Enjoy a fish’s-eye view of the world’s oldest iron hull, peep inside the luxury cabins of First Class passengers, and discover the fascinating story of her rescue from the bottom of the South Atlantic and her final triumphant return to Bristol, exactly 127 years to the day after her launch.
