    The ship, which opened in 2016, followed by the completion of a visitor and exhibition centre in the restored Pump House and refurbishment of Alexandra Dock earlier this year, was the recipient of the largest ever Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £11.5m in 2014. It is the only project from Northern Ireland as a finalist in the Heritage category of the Awards.
