The total cost of the SeaCity Museum is about £15m.
The Heritage Lottery Fund awarded the project a total of £4.9m towards the attraction. Develop
ment funding was awarded in March 2009 and the bulk of the grant was awarded in 2010.
The remainder of the money is being raised by Southampton City Council. A Southampton Cultural Development Trust has also formed as a Company limited by Guarantee to raise funds towards this project and other aspects of the city’s Cultural Quarter.
This independent, registered charity is governed by a board of volunteer Trustees drawn from the business and arts communities who are advocates for the arts and culture in the city.
