It is the last place Titanic rested on dry ground, and is her physical footprint in history. Visitors can experience life in 1912 by descending 44 feet into the colossal dry dock and walk in the footsteps of the men who worked in the shipyard a century ago. Experience the engineering behind the legendary pump-house, which still houses the original pumping engines, situated deep in the pump-well. The Pump-House also includes a visitor center and cafe, where you can relax and enjoy hot and cold snacks, refreshments, free wi-fi, or even pick up a souvenir or two from our Titanic gift shop. An inspiring and thought-provoking experience awaits you! « less

This was interesting, but I wish there was more information available to those who don't manage to make one of the tours. I recommend this over the museum, though I suppose its personal preference. If you expect to have a highly polished experience, this may not be your thing. If you want to get a sense of scale of the... More

We purchased entry to the Pumphouse and Dock along with tickets to the Titanic Experience, very good value for money. It’s not very easy to find, and really does need better signing from the main Titanic Experience. We had the self guided tour. Once you arrive at the Pumphouse, you get to have a quick look around and watch some... More

I very much enjoyed this tour - walking the space that the actual Titantic sat in dry dock before setting of on her voyage. The photos we were shown of the exact positions and places were amazing!

The new attraction is a great add to the Belfast tourisme offering. A beautiful designed building leads you through the history of the city and the making of the Titanic. You really get a taste of how this period was for the people living there. The setup of the exhibition is exactly right - not too long and with good... More

We did this as a combined ticket along with the Titanic experience which was a good value option. Only a 10 minute walk from the T.E., felt it could be better signposted as you wonder where to go once you leave the T.E. Well worth the walk. We managed to get along with a guided tour, and the guide (can't... More

As I don't have a particualr interest in either the Titanic or shipbuilidng, I didn't expect to like this as much as I did, but I found it fascinating. To stand in the dry dock is to truly appreciate the size of Titanic. The explanations are done well. The Dock and Pump House is about 1/2 to 3/4 mile walk... More

This was an amazing exhibit inside and out! Nine galleries of information and interactive, virtual and realistic exhibits. It's more about the building of the Titanic and the shipbuilding industry then the sinking, although there is alot of info on that as well. The building it is housed in is admirable as well. Book online if you plan to go... More
