Since March 2009 the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has awarded the council a total of £4.9 million towards the £15m museum. Southampton Cultural Development Trust has been formed as a company limited by guarantee to raise funding towards the costs of the project.
Kier Southern is the building contractor on SeaCity Museum, the work commenced in October 2010. Post 2012, if funding permits, later phases could open up more of the Old Magistrates' Court 1930's building as exhibition space.
SeaCity Museum is the latest important step in the development of Southampton's Cultural Quarter. Southampton Cultural Development Trust is spearheading the city's drive to complete the Cultural Quarter, with its new galleries, performance and film spaces, through fundraising and advocacy. www.culturesouthampton.org.uk
