  • Fun and educational about Belfast, the Titanic and sea life. It was interactive and told about building the ship. It had lots of photos and footage. The building is beautiful and impressive.  more »
  • Well worth a visit when in Belfast. Spent a couple of hours here but you could definitely stay longer if your really into the story of Titanic & it’s history. Lots to see & do, a good range of display...  more »

  • Great experience... The conceptualization for this facility was well-thought-out and has something for everybody. Old photos from the past mixed with new technology - audio/visual mastery mix together to tell the story of this great shipyard, like no documentary on TV could ever do. A short ride inside the facility actually guides you through the building-process of the Titanic and as you come to the part of the ride where men pounded large steel rivets into girders and steel plates, you can actually feel the heat and experience what hot rivets might have felt like, when working with them more than 100 years ago. Inside this amazing building are also full-size representations of the cabins for First Class passengers on down to second class and the lowest fee passengers. The entire experience from the bottom floor to the top provides a very good look at what the massive scale of planning and building the Titanic was all about. Two food courts are on the ground floor and my wife and I had fish and chips at the facility nearest the side to the place where the keel was laid for the Titanic. The food was good, the line was quick and soon we were on our way outside. To stand in the actual spot where the keel was laid (a plaque marks the spot) and to gaze upon the incredible length of the area where the Titanic was built, conjures up images of all the departed souls who not only built the ship, but whom perished in the seas only days after she left on her maiden voyage. When I first saw the online images of the new building that was constructed to house the exhibits, my first thought was "what an ugly monstrosity" but to actually come around the corner from where our hop-on, hop-off" bus dropped us, and see this gleaming building do you really then sense the brilliance of the design. It is magnificent in every way imaginable. Photos can’t do the building justice, like being on the ground in person and witnessing this impressive structure. Great tour, wonderful experience and I'm glad I traveled all the way from Texas to Belfast to see this.
  • Impressive yet sobering place to visit. Includes many pieces of information and items you definitely won't have seen before. Regeneration of the immediate area is also well done and the scale of site where Titanic was constructed is mind blowing. There's a walkable trail to and from the quarter which is worth doing on a clear day.
  • Went here for about 2hrs with the family! The pricing is definitely reasonable and worth it. It started from the history of the town then went into building the ship etc. Looking out the window you can see the place it was actually made which was interesting! The staff there were extremely friendly and there was a lot of signage telling you where to go. There are a lot lifts in the building and on the small amusement type of ride there was a wheelchair accessible capsule. Overall I would highly recommend this as it is also very child friendly!
  • This is not a museum of Titanic things. It is an excellent walk through experience that explores everything Titanic. The people who built her and their lives. What they went through. How they lived. There working conditions. Went with 3 other people and we all felt it was more in depth than a museum would have been, and enjoyed it more because of it. If your looking for bits and bobs from ship skip it. If you want in depth Titanic knowledge presented wonderfully, GO SEE THIS.
  • When in Belfast, include this on your list, but give yourself plenty of time to see it. We spent almost 5 hours working our way through the main building, and had to return the next day to see the SS Nomadic, which was a further 1.5 hours. We got a child and an adult audio tour, but one of us didn’t use audio yet equally filled the time with just reading and interacting with items throughout the multiple levels and exhibits. The variety is great. There is a kids map and set of questions to search for and our kid read and searched for stuff for a good 4 hours! We appreciate this level of kid-friendliness when looking for engaging activities. On what was a cold winters day worked our way through the various exhibit levels with only a handful of other people around us. If you are coming in the peak seasons, the website suggests to book your day/time 8 weeks in advance. Because we came during the off season we had more space, less pressure, easier access to interactive elements, and a more relaxed visit. Our kid also got to go on the ride twice, so that was clearly a win! We had read some negative comments in visitor posts (most from >6 years ago) about this location, but our experience was excellent. I can understand how it may be hard to follow the path of information, but it is hard to go wrong or get lost. If it was really busy it may be harder to follow (we got more lost in the Churchill War Rooms!) but there were staff about to guide you if needed. Remember that this location is not about the Titanic, but about Belfast AND the Titanic. There is a lot of accessory history presented, and knowing this will help you. (SPOILER: You know the ship sinks. How was it built?) Outside it is worth taking a walk around the 401 and 402 dry dock area (now filled in, but with scaled information and other interesting information). You get a view of it from the main building but it is worth walking over. Take particular note of the alternating grass and wood deck sections on the 402 area. Make time for the SS Nomadic. See our review for that location also.
