Our visitor experience is presented in two parts. The first is an exciting immersive audio visual tour retracing the steps of the 123 passengers who boarded Titanic from Queenstown on April 11th 1912. Experience their anticipation of the long journey ahead and their new life waiting in America. With Fourth Officer Boxall as your virtual guide and using innovative audio visual technology and replica set designs, ‘passengers’ will experience what life would have been like on board for those 123 Queenstown Passengers. Passengers will share the excitement of boarding the most Luxurious liner of her time and feel the horror of the tragedy on that fateful night on the 15th April 1912.

“Feel the Titanic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Special feeling about this experience as this is where the last passengers embarked on the Titanic. Storyline flows well from start to finish. Of supreme interest to kids! Worth going back for a second time!

“A must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

It really personalises the whole Titanic story by using local links starting with your ticket.Transports you from taking the tender from Cobh harbour through a sample of the rooms on the Ship ,to the sinking and stories from the relatives of some of the passengers.This is a must visit if you are in the area.

“Tourist trap that is worth paying for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

The fascination with Titanic is a bit morbid and this exhibition naturally dwells on the fait of the dead. However it is well designed and also gives an understanding of the background. It is accurately set in the old office of the shipping company. Partly guided. Expensive but if you go to Queenstown (now named Cobh, a unhistorical name) you can´t miss it!
