Southampton Maritime Museum

From Graces Guide

This was a small maritime museum in a 15th century wool warehouse close to the waterfront. Exhibits included an 1879 John Penn and Sons oscillating steam engine from the paddle steamer PS Empress. This, and the ship's steam steering engine, are now on display at the Internal Fire Museum of Power in West Wales.

The museum has been replaced by the SeaCity Museum, but it is not clear what artefacts are on display.
