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

It was so interesting in scale and information. We did this tour before and could access the drawing office where the Titanic etc were planned. A bit disappointed that this no longer forms part of the tour. But still enjoyed

If you are looking for the place where the Titanic was built then this is it. It’s all very neat and tidy and like most museums it’s difficult to imagine how it was in its day. I hope they keep the H & W cranes forever as they present a great statue of remembrance and are big reminders of a... More

Some of the previous negatives are purely nit picking. The Pump House and Dock are virtually as they were when the Titanic was there, unchanged. If you stand there you can use your own imagination of what it must have been like, it is reality and not a replica. Those that can't accept reality jog on.

Wow, huge space and amazing to be able to stand where Titanic last touched dry ground! The sheer size of the dock brings home just how huge the ship must have been. A must see if in Belfast!

I found this very disappointing, the one way tour didn't seem to work that way. So much you couldn't see because of the lay out. The toilets were disgusting, when I spoke to the girl about she replied with 'oh' no offer of alternative toilets. I was so looking forward to visiting, we had a family ticket. My son who... More

This was our second to the pump house. Well worth the 20 min walk from the museum Titanic Belfast. The guid was very informative and had some good stories. A must see part of our Titanic trip

Spent a couple of hours one afternoon during a recent visit to Belfast, walking round the pump house balcony, watching first the short animation of how the pumping system worked and then a movie on the workings of the complete system. After this, we walked around the top of the dry dock, where there were information boards with quite a... More

Found this fascinating! Do watch the short film before going out to the dry dock. Very informative and what a feat of engineering for the era! Dry dock gives a great idea as to the actual size of the Titanic when you climb down into it. Amazing!

But it's still well worth a visit for Titanic fans. The pump house itself is fairly interesting, but won't keep you occupied for a very long time. The dry dock however is impressive, the shear scale of the space is amazing and you get a feel for how big this legend of a ship was. It's quite a walk from... More
