About
The SS Nomadic is known as Titanic's little sister. Built at the same time, by the same people, in the same Harland and Wolff shipyard as Titanic, Nomadic brought those boarding the great liner at Cherbourg to the ship. That was the start of an adventurous life, as she played a part in WW One and Two, carried many famous people to the great trans-Atlantic liners, became a floating restaurant in Paris and was saved from being scrapped by the people of Belfast.Now completely refurbished as a visitor attraction, you can walk in the footsteps of history, learn her story, and become part of the new chapter of her dramatic existence.

Unfortunately the upper/outdoor decks get closed off if the weather is deemed too wet. But otherwise an interesting museum with nice staff. If you already have the Titanic museum ticket, it's definitely worth stopping by here too.

This is definitely worth the extra 30 minutes after the Titanic exhibition to give you a real taster of the White Star experience and a little sense of the amazing luxury for first class - after all, this was only a tender!
But this little ship has a fascinating history in its own right so make sure you do read all the panels around.

Visited this ship after being round the Titanic Museum. It is included with your entry fee. The restoration has been worthwhile as it is in excellent condition.

We toured the SS Nomadic today during our visit to Belfast for the Maritime Festival. It was lovely to walk around and explore the ship. Our guide Peter was fascinating. He has a wealth of information about the Titanic, the Nomadic and the White Star Line, and made the visit very special.
The Maritime Festival itself was very well organised and was a great family day out.

I visited SS Nomadic as part of the Titanic exhibition in its dry dock location in Belfast.

I believe it is the only White Star vessel still in existence and it must have been dwarfed by the huge Titanic.

It was used to ferry passengers from Cherbourg harbour to the Titanic as that was too big to dock in the harbour.

I understand it also saw active service in both World Wars.

I spent an enjoyable half hour or so looking around this interesting vessel.

Three of us viewed this exhibit as part of the Titanic Museum entry charge. The boat is moored in a dry dock a short walk from the museum itself.

This tour was okay nothing spectacular, could put more effort into it , such as proper manikins, maybe in a glass cabinet, instead of shabby rail with sign saying don't touch. The tour has a lot of potential but needs a little more work. Staff were very friendly
