This small museum was well done and informative. Before entering, we were assigned the name of a passenger who boarded at Cobh, which helped to personalize our tour. It was interesting to see the cabins and to step back into this historical representation of a tragic journey. While it wasn't one of our favorites per se, I am glad that... More

Ironic that the experience takes place in the building which used to house the offices of the White Star Line, where the last passengers left land to board the Titanic. Before you start "the Experience", you are identified as one of those passengers. You don't find out until later if you survive. Well worth the cost.

We have all heard of the Titanic and it's tragic end. But this experience in Cobh, Ireland provides a unique perspective on the people who boarded the Titanic at Cobh which was the ship's last British Isles stop before crossing the Atlantic. It's not for everyone but it you are interested in learning what really happened to the titanic (vs... More

I quite liked this Titanic experience as it had lots of information on the admission ticket and the displays highlighted some of the conditions passengers faced on the fateful trip. Having travelled throughout the UK and not enjoying paying for parking outside most of the attractions (and even a lot of the Visitor Centres) it was nice that the Pay... More

The visit was worth it - we learned a few things and got a better feeling of the experiences of all types of passenger. I felt they could have done more though they are pretty limited in terms of space. I believe the rival(?) exhibition in Belfast is bigger and more interesting. However, it was a worthwhile hour or so... More

Dddd'ont miss this if you visit Cobh. It was the original place of departure for passengers on the titanic. The reconstruction of the sinking is a chilling realistic experience not to be forgotten. Film of the wreck with commentary from the first man to decend and see it. Much else as well.

Good narration of Titanic. Could have been included a few things from real stuff. Admission price is bit too much.

If you are at all interested in the Titanic disaster, then this is the museum for you. I was very surprised at the level of detail in this museum and was fascinated with the information. Very entertaining. A must see and very inexpensive.

Visited last Tuesday, didn't realise that it was a guided tour so that was a bonus we only had to wait 10 mins for the tour, we were given replica boarding tickets with the actual name of one of the passengers. The tour guide along with the virtual guide were very informative and you could get a real feel of... More
