Owner description: The Titanic Belfast visitor attraction extends over nine galleries, with multiple dimensions to the exhibition. Drawing together special effects, dark rides, full-scale reconstructions and innovative interactive features you will explore the Titanic story in a fresh and insightful way from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to her infamous maiden voyage and catastrophic demise. The journey goes beyond the aftermath of the sinking, to the discovery of the wreck and continues into the present day in the Ocean Exploration Centre.

When visiting this site, we had the sense that it was intended as the cornerstone of a harbor redevelopment project. It has dramatic architecture and a theme that tries to tie together Belfast's industrial and shipbuilding past and the Titanic disaster. It works well in some respects, but less so in others.

You can readily see from the photos that the building has a striking outside appearance, and the inside is dramatic as well. There was plentiful convenient parking in the attached garage, so it's easy to visit.

The exhibit itself starts with the birth of industry in Belfast up to its role in shipbuilding and that launches, so to speak, the Titanic exhibit. Of course, the Titanic itself sits at the bottom of the Atlantic. And the salvage from that ship is owned by a company that has a touring display currently in the U.S. This museum largely makes up what it doesn't have in the way of artifacts retrieved from the sea bottom with an array of clever multimedia presentations, including one 270 degree virtual tour of the ship.

The Titanic display begins with a tour of sorts of the shipbuilding process including a ride in a car similar to that of the "Peter Pan" ride at Disneyland. You "fly" around the shipyard past scenes of the various steps used to build the ship. They have models and visuals of the ship and finally of the ship itself at the sea bottom. There are also displays of how the sinking has been portrayed in various movies, including "A Night to Remember" and the James Cameron/Leonardo DiCaprio/Kate Winslet movie from a few years ago.

I liked the use of many different kinds of media and also how they tied it into Belfast where the ship was built. Like some others, I came away thinking it was less than perfect - maybe not having the artifacts was part - maybe they needed more on the human story of the 1500 or so people that perished. Still, this is very much worth a visit.

This is an amazing experience and I would thoroughly recommend you visit. We used the City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off bus to get there, which stops right outside. We spent 4 hours there. The exhibition was stunning from the aliminum facade outside, the design was inspired by water crystals as they begin to freeze. The long and short Benches outside were depicted as the SOS morse code. We used an audio guide. All the displays are extremely well laid out and the staff delightful, so helpful. I loved learning about the building, the workers, their lives. There is a ride that takes you round to experience some of the things the workers had to deal with, fascinating. You see the 3types of cabins, first, second and third class.The type of passengers and you can listen to survivors tell their stories. You can stand on a glass floor and There is footage of the Titanic underwater and the artefacts around her and there is a inter active display wher you can highlight them to see what they found. There is a Galley Cafe and Bistro which was just what we needed afterwards. I forgot to mention outside there is a dry dock marked by posts that show where the Titanic was built and launched. Great value for money £15 per person. The interest spanned from school children to Senior Citizens.

Wonderful building, great views. Museum with lots of information on ship building but could have more on Titanic. My wife and I enjoyed it but expensive for what it is.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to review your visit. We really value and appreciate all feedback received from our guests.
I am glad that overall you enjoyed your visit with us, especially the building and the views.

I apologise that you felt the price you paid was too expensive. Our average visit time is at least two to three hours and the general admission ticket also includes entrance on to the SS Nomadic, the last remaining White Star Line vessel and Titanic’s ‘little sister’. We have bench-marked our prices against other leading visitor attractions around the world and as such, many of our guests feel that their experience at Titanic Belfast is good value for money.

We do our best to cover the entire Titanic story from construction to discovery using a wide variety of interesting and interactive mediums. However, there is so much information surrounding the story of Titanic, it is difficult to include every detail. I apologise if you felt any part of the Titanic story was not properly explored.

If you have any further comments or suggestions, please do get in touch. Once again, I would like to thank you for your review.

Visited here with my family at the end of June and had a great experience. All of the staff we met were very helpful and accommodating. The entire tour was self guided and very interesting. It gave a good insight into the history of Belfast, workforce, industry and titanic. They have audio guides in many different languages. There is also a ride you take which is fun.
