About
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.

    Fun and informative
    The exhibition is magnificent and makes full use of technology to give a stunning immersive experience. We booked the White Star Premium Pass which included a guided walking tour. Our small group was enthralled by the impressive knowledge and lively presentation given by our guide Pip who definitely went the extra mile for us and who we cannot recommend highly enough. It is a fabulous day out. A word of caution though; we arrived at 1.00pm and by 6.00pm still had not completed the whole experience so make sure you give yourself enough time.

    Great - but pace yourself
    This is a fantastic museum. On reflection, we spent too long in the first part of the museum where you learn about what was happening in Belfast at the time the Titanic was built. It's useful and interesting and gives context but there is so much to see and experience later on. We felt tired by the time we got to the most interesting parts and wished we'd saved more energy for that.

    Worth the visit
    We visited the museum at the end of a tour of Giants Causeway. This museum is so well organised, staff are really helpful (plenty of toilets). It was very informative and we a group of four friends really enjoyed it. I would recommend anyone visiting Belfast to visit the museum.

    Museum Tour
    I never thought much about the Titanic until we were in Belfast and visited the museum. Here we were shown in a very well done and informative way, all that took place leading up to that fateful day. Well worth seeing!

    Titanic distillery definitely worth it.
    We visited the Titanic distillery today to do their signature tour. Our tour guide was called Brian who made the whole tour even better. The tour itself is fascinating and so interesting. They have kept the buildings all original which was great to see. The best part definitely was the tour guide. Brian was the nicest person and had a personal interest in the Whiskey and it’s history which really made the tour so worthwhile. We will definitely another tour again and hopefully Brian will be taking it. Very worthwhile overall.

    Well-curated museum
    The Titanic museum was very well curated. It painted a moving and comprehensive picture of Harland and Wolff (H and W) shipyards at the time and thier impact on Belfast. The sinking of the Titanic was factual (unlike the fictional movie) but also moving, as it should be.

    Absolutely fascinating.
    This is a must see for anyone visiting Belfast and with even a remote interest in the story of Titanic. The first galleries tell the background & history of the city. But it's the later galleries, after the "shipyard ride" which really stand out. The final couple of galleries with the voices of survivors and the role call of names of the rescued and those who perished, along with the sound and light show are moving beyond belief. Try to get there early for a leisurely visit and to avoid school groups! It's also interesting to stroll around the surrounding area to get a feel for the size of the dockyards. Nearby you also get a view of the giant cranes known as Samson & Goliath.

    An interesting take on a timeless story
    Most of us are familiar with the tale of the Titanic. we had been to a couple of Titanic museums in the United States. this particular Museum was unusual for a couple of reasons, but primarily due to the location, as the museum is found in the shipyards where the Titanic was built. first off, if you are planning to visit this Museum you need to get tickets ahead of time. we traveled in March and, due to our experience in visiting museums around the world, we purchase tickets months in advance. we arrived at the Museum almost 2 hours ahead of our scheduled visitation time, and wre told that the museum was sold out and there was no way for us to enter the exhibit any earlier than the time on our tickets. and this was not even high tourist season. the museum does a very good job in describing the ship building industry in Belfast and how the Titanic came into existence. if anything the exhibit spends more time detailing the construction of the ship, then it's demise. there is also a fair amount of focus on the individuals who perished, and those that survived. there is a short section on Bob Ballard's original Expedition that successfully found the Titanic's resting place. it is probably the Best Titanic exhibit I have visited, and well worth your time should you be in Belfast. recommended

    A decent museum
    Lots of information and nicely laid out. Good customer service and a unique experience to be where it launched itself. Thought there could have been more personal information but overall, a nice way to spend an hour or so.

    Informative and Touching
    The museum does a really nice job of putting you in early 20th century Belfast and understanding what life would have been like. It has a nice touch of history, personal stories, artifacts, recreations, and information. You should definitely set aside a few hours and check it out.

This attraction shows the history of shipping in Belfast, and in particular it's most famous product the Titanic. Well worth a few hours visit. Was quiet when we visited (New Years' Day) but recommend you purchase 'Skip the Line' tickets in busier times

The Titanic Museum commands an impressive exterior and position. The building alone is worth a visit.

It is appropriately priced and you should allow a good amount of time to explore it in its entirety. Much of the initial displays discuss the history of Belfast, it’s industrialisation, linen trade and maritime history. As you progress the displays focus more on the Titanic itself, culminating in the sinking, it’s aftermath and portrayal in media. There is a ride at one point which adds some excitement and many displays are interactive.

We paid extra for the audio guide which I would not recommend as it added little to the experience and was not always clearly marked where each subject should be listened to. There is plenty to read, hear, see etc without it.

Changes made during the pandemic are appropriate with all guests expected to wear facial coverings and follow a one way system. At times however, areas became busy and it was difficult to appropriately social distance. Hand sanitisation stations are located throughout.

As the title suggests, this is an essential visit for anyone visiting Belfast and well worth the journey.

The building is very impressive from the outside and is very photogenic. We visited early on a Saturday morning, so it was not too busy outside and we didn’t have to queue long inside either. There is lots of hand sanitiser around and the socially distanced floor markings are easy to follow. Mask adherence was also good. The staff are incredibly friendly and informative and are there if you have any questions. The museum is very informative and takes you on a journey from start to finish of Titanic, including the history of Belfast and it’s trade, right through to the debris of the sunken ship. An emotive and informative experience which you must visit whilst in Belfast. I have a few criticisms which make me give it 4 stars and not 4 and one of these is that I would have liked there to be a cafe or somewhere to grab something to eat or drink in the middle of the tour. I also wouldn’t pay for the audio guide again - at times it was distracting and wasn’t overly informative. I would have preferred to just read the information on display. If you’re in Belfast, make sure to visit. Make sure you prebook your time slot online in advance to make it easy.

Student discount system most illogical I’ve ever seen. Only available on weekdays when weekends are the only time students are free to visit, especially from outside of Belfast. Practically queued the entire way through the exhibit, which was constantly playing different sounds and audio stories over each other so it was just one big bundle of sound. Michael is an excellent staff member and the ride was excellent but wish the whole museum had been like this.

Thanks for taking the time to get in contact and I’m sorry to hear that your visit fell below expectations. We do have a plan in place to try to keep a steady flow moving through the building but nonetheless we appreciate it can get very crowded at times. We’re sorry to hear this impacted on your visit. Delighted to hear that you enjoyed the shipyard ride and that you had a good experience with our wonderful crew member, Michael. I'll be sure to pass on your comments regarding our student discount to the relevant departments and once again, can only thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

I did enjoy the Titanic museum, I’m a big fan of the Titanic so I’m glad I went and would recommend it to anyone.

However I was expecting so much more. I was slightly underwhelmed and my expectations weren’t met.

It takes you through the years starting in the 1700s showing Belfast as a city and explains why the Titanic was built there, all the way through to discovering the wreck in 1985.

I was expecting to see artefacts recovered from the wreck; maybe a life jacket, some clothes, salvaged furniture or a lifeboat. There was the odd watch or china plate here and there but nothing spectacular.

There was very little on the sinking, survivors or people lost in the disaster. I had so many unanswered questions: What happened to Captain Smith in his last moments? Thomas Andrews? The Orchestra? Has anyone tried to find the lifeboats that just miraculously disappeared?

It felt more of story being told in a modern day exhibition rather than a museum.

It’s £2 extra for a audio tour if you use your own smartphone and headphones (they did give me one of their own headsets which is usually £4). It wasn’t really needed as there’s so much to read but for the sake of £2 it’s worth it.

I did enjoy it and spent a good 4 hours in there, I learnt a lot and there was some great exhibits. The ride was enjoyable and the Nomadic experience was excellent (although you couldn’t go on the outside decks due to Covid-19) but I was expecting a lot more on the disaster.

My friend & I purchased a Titanic  experience standard ticket online in advance but decided to upgrade to the White Star pass on arrival which included the discovery guided tour & it was the best decision I've made. To be clear I do not do museum's very often at all, since being dragged round them as a child by my parents I seem to have developed a phobia & usually avoid them at all costs! This one however was different, very different, this museum I was desperate to visit since it was built, partly because I love the film & wanted to learn more about the actual Ship & partly because I visited 10 years earlier & all there was a gift shop that was closed! After we upgraded we joined one of the first guided tours of the day. Shirley was our guide & she was absolutely brilliant, she told the historical story of Titanic in such a heartwarming manner, actually making us quite tearful at one point. She was extremely detailed & knowledgeable, as if she'd experienced it all first hand. She was always checking that everyone in the group was present before she continued with the next stage/room/chapter. She was happy, friendly welcoming & helpful with any questions. Our perfect guide. This tour took about an hour & takes you into the impressive Titanic Hotel & into several different rooms where the plans were drawn. We then moved outside to view the launch area & then inside into the Titanic experience.
After the tour had finished we collected our headsets & continued the journey through Titanic's history on our own, wandering from deck to deck listening intensely to the audio. The graphics & technology involved were amazing! Interactive, entertaining & includes a ride through Titanic's complex construction processes.
This wasn't just any museum, it's carved the new future for all museums!
When we finally finished we spent time in the gift shop (a much improved one to 10 years ago I'll add!) & headed outside to the SS Nomadic. Sadly by this point we were exhausted from walking (yes there's quite a bit of it) & having realised we'd spent 5 hours, yes 5 hours walking around we decided to rest our feet & find a pub! There is food & drink available inside the museum though. We had a lovely tea break before our guided tour started! And if your lucky you may be treated to some traditional Irish dancing & music that takes place in the centre concourse.
This was an amazing experience, well worth the wait & the length of time we took to get round everything, (nearly everything, sorry  SS Nomadic!).
Good value for money too. I would definitely recommend & I would actually return! 🙂
Ps we visited just before lockdown, so things may have altered slightly since then.

We had read previous reviews of Titanic Belfast and had anticipated staying for a maximum of 3 hours.
Eventually we left after approximately 6 hours including lunch.
We bought the White Star Premium passes which included the discovery tour and a visit to SS Nomadic and we felt that it was great value considering the amount of time that we were on site.
The exhibition in itself was very informative and we learnt a lot of new things about this ill-fated voyage.
The highlight for us though was the Discovery Tour, our guide (Shirley) added the much needed human element to the story of the Titanic which was emotive at times.
The tour began with a walk through the hotel next door which had previously been the Harland & Wolff Offices, you could imagine the draughtsmen designing the ships in the natural light provided by the sky lights.
We moved on to the offices of key H&W staff and Shirley's account really brought it back to life for us.
We walked around the outside of the building, seeing the key architectural features and how they related to the titanic herself.
On moving into the building Shirley once again excelled at bringing this story to life.
After a lovely lunch in the Pantry we ventured on to the SS Nomadic. Once again we were greeted by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable member of staff who told us more about the vessel which is the last remaining White Star vessel and gave us a feel of what the Titanic would have been like all of the years ago.
10/10 I would definitely recommend this venue.

We bought the £19 tickets which includes access to the tender ship Nomadic in the dry dock outside. The Titanic experience itself was located in an impressive building located at the end of the slipways where the actual ship and its sister ship were built. Visitors walk through the exhibition which takes you through the history of the area, the people that built the ship, details of the cabins and internal fit out, the people on board, the collision and the aftermath and includes interactive areas and even a 'ride' through the ship while its being built. One of our party was wheelchair bound and was able to use an electric scooter to go round the exhibition and there were plenty of lifts available. After the exhibition we visited the coffee shop prior to going round the Nomadic which is in a dry dock a short distance outside.

Went to the Titanic Museum in Belfast yesterday as my daughter was doing the subject at school. We were lucky enough to be able to get booked on the White Star Premium guided tour with Rob who was an absolutely fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable and his personality really brought it all to life, he got the kids and adults involved.
The galleries were also really good and if you go to them after the tour it really helps you to understand what each part is showing. The ticket also got us access to the SS Nomadic which was also staffed with very knowledgeable, passionate people who clearly love what they do.
The cafe is stocked with lovely cakes and freshly made foods, definitely worth a visit. The gift shop is well stocked and reasonably priced.
In all it was a very enjoyable day and I would thoroughly recommend it.
Well done Rob and all the team who brought this tragic story to life with compassion and empathy.

My husband and I visited the titanic museum and were very glad we pre-booked as saw lots of people being politely turned away at the doors. All the staff were friendly and helpful with ensuring social distancing was maintained.
The museum itself is great- starting with learning about the history of Belfast and the ship building industry and then the titanic part. The references made to those that died was respectful and there are recordings of survivors voices that was very moving.
The museum is well executed with videos and interactive displays.
We were however very disappointed that we couldn’t visit the Normadic. We were led to believe we could go on the boat but it was closed up and no staff or signage was available to explain if it had closed early or was closed due to social distancing not being feasible on board.
I wouldn’t visit again but wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the museum to any new visitors.
