  • Very interesting tour that lasted about 30 minutes. Located in the old White Star ticket office. This tour gives you how passengers experienced Titanic. There is not much in the way of artifacts from Titanic if that is what you would like to see. An interesting exhibit room at the end of the tour with many facts from the ship. But be advised no real artifacts to speak of.
  • Different than the titanic experience in Belfast but it puts a different spin on things by focusing on the titanic's stop off at Queenstown (Cobh). Interesting and worth the price.
  • Pros: - Very friendly staff. I was kindly received at the reception and had my questions answered in the guided tour - It's an old White Star Line building, so, you are litterally stepping where the Titanic passangers stepped - A priviliged view of the pier where Titanic last stopped - Lots of stories about irish passangers and a crew member. Before you enter, you receive a ticket with the name of a real passanger of Titanic, and you are invited to find out, at the end of the guided tour, in the self-guided exhibit, what happened that person. There are more than 100 stories of real passengers Cons: - There are audiovisual clips among the guided tour, but they are not very much exciting - Lack of artifacts in display. The most interesting of them in my opinion was a menu of the 3rd and 1st class. I had the feeling that this museum is not very much about the Titanic itself, but it's importance to the city and the irish people. I think it's worth it, especially for these stories.
  • As a Titanic enthusiast I was excited to visit this historical site. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The most interesting part of the tour is certainly seeing the remains of the dock where the last of titanic a passengers boarded the steamer to be "taxied" out to Titanic which was anchored off shore Well worth a visit of in Cobh and is a short distance from Cork city by car so well worth the visit of your there too
  • Dreadful overpriced cramped uninformative tourist trap which will add nothing of note to your knowledge about the Titanic, unless you've literally never heard of the disaster before. Essentially you're visiting the old ticket office building of the White Star Line company where the ship picked up its last passengers from. You get a few badly-scripted audiovisual clips playing inside and you get to spend a bit of time in a mock third class and first class cabin. There's a couple of minutes outside up on the first floor to be shown the 200-year old pier where the passengers would have left from. This is mildly interesting, as it comes with some info about the geography of Cork harbour, but you'll be awkwardly avoiding the gazes of the pub patrons below you during this time. Luckily there's a small bell you can ring as you go back in, to tickle the five year old in you. At the end you'll be craning your neck at a massive screen in a small room, showing you a daftly-cheap animation of how the ship went down. There's then a small gallery with information boards about the event and the link with local communities. A few of these are worth reading, but after half an hour of being cramped in with 20 other people in rooms barely big enough for ten, the waste of 9.5 euros will likely occupy most of your mind anyway. Watch the movie, or find the pub in front of the building and get even closer to the old pier - it's literally the only historic artefact in the whole place anyway.
