  • On the occasion of the visit of the Titanic is as yet a little time then it's a must. SS Nomadic can be seen from the inside, to see real things left behind by passengers. White Star line use a ho to carry passengers to the Titanic, because not every waterfront could tie your vessel of this giant. It was equipped with a very high class furniture-as I and II class on the Titanic. Has 67 m in length.

  • After been in the Titanic Experience it’s worth a little visit, make it part of your tour as you can only visit if you’ve paid the little extra at entrance to the main museum. The staff are very frien...  more »

  • A nicely-restored White Star line vessel, this was once a tender ship to Titanic. Gives a good idea of how these types of boats looked 100 years ago. Good interactive displays, and nice to view at your own pace. An integral part of the Titanic experience and included in the entrance price for the Titanic museum.
  • Great restoration of the SS Nomadic, this has added to the Titanic experience by being able to see a ship from the era that the Titanic was built. My children really enjoyed looking at the boat and exploring the interactive learning materials they have on board. This attraction has full disabled access and toilet facilities.
  • Lovely old sailing vessel. The only White Star left. It has been restored with many original features. Interactive holographics. Friendly and knowledgeable guides. Really get a feel of this period in time sea travelling. We visited the vessel as part of our Titanic Experience ticket.
  • Guide was extremely well informed and helpful. It was a privilege to be allowed aboard this vessel and experience what it might have been like to embark on the journey to the Titanic. A fantastic piece of history we should ve proud of.
  • The SS Nomadic is an integral part of the Titanic experience. Since you can't feel what it is like to be on the Titanic, you can stand on the very ship that shuttled people to the Titanic. It's a beautiful ship that has been well preserved and lovingly restored. There are several interactive, high tech, exhibits on the ship. Upon entering, you can imagine the anticipation that the passengers felt as they were being ferried to the Titanic. If this was the shuttle, you can only imagine the scale of the Titanic. I certainly recommend visiting the SS Nomadic. It's directly across the street from the Titanic Experience building in the dry dock that was used to build many ships. The whole experience is a little expensive when you are traveling with multiple people but children under 5 are free.
