At Titanic Belfast, learn the story of the doomed ship in the city in which it was built. hear survivors' stories while seeing images of the ship sinking. Galleries cover photos of Belfast from the period of the ship's construction, scenes of the ship's 1911 launch, the aftermath of the tragedy, and the rediscovery of the wreck at the bottom of the Atlantic. Take a ride in a mini-car around a replica of the Titanic's rudder.The building itself is a striking addition to Belfast architecture. Its design recalls features of the Titanic, and a facade of 3,000 individual silver anodized aluminum shards evokes the iceberg that sank the ship. Titanic Belfast is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Belfast Edition.

    Clearly a lot of thought and investment has gone in to this museum which is exceptionally thorough and beautifully explores the context, building and sinking of the Titanic. Tickets are pricey but it'...  more »

    Super interesting! High technology we discover how the Titanic, the local economy at that time was built around a visit, it immerses us even on the site at the beginning of the visit! Very good staging of the parts of the boat. Then comes the after Titanic or you see under your feet with the Giants the wreck of the baquebot screen, it is y know! In short do absolutely! Not given but it passes easily 3bonnes hours!

  • Awesome experience. Had planned a cost for one hour. But the place was so welcoming that I spent 3 hours there. Don't miss to walk across and spend some time at SS Dominic too. Good souvenir shop too. Loved the captain's hat which I picked up.
  • Honestly it's not horrible. I do think this exhibit is a complete waste of time. How long can cities trade on a sunken ship? Not cheap either. If you love titanic the movie you're just shallow enough to probably enjoy it. If you hated the movie you're probably better off in a pub talking to locals and getting some local history which is infinitely more interesting.
  • Really enjoyed the experience as I'm interested in Titanic. Interactive experience inside and we'll worth going to see it. The building itself is amazing. Good was good for a snack. Expensive to get in. But worth it as one off experience and plenty of parking.
  • To be honest the 'old exhibition' we toured in 2011 was much, much better. I was really looking forward to this in 2016 based upon our previous experience and was left disappointed. The layout didn't make sense and the ride at the end was lame. It should of been built over the Thompson Graving Dock where the Titanic was fitted out.
  • Very interesting and emotional museum. We rented the audio headphones which I highly recommend. The museum is self guided with excellent displays. Many hands on displays as well. Fun for kids and even us kid-at-heart adults! Perfect for a rainy day.
