Owner description: Titanic's Dock and Pump-House is the world's only authentic Titanic landmark. 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!

“Interesting but Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

The price for the pump house is not worthy of the experience. Five pounds for a small display is disproportionate. I learned more by wandering outside and seeing all the outdoor titanic-related places.

“Real Titanic History at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Visited recently and were taken down into the dry dock and shown around the pump house etc. Our guide Helen was excellent and obviously loved what she was doing - full of information and drive. She really made the tour. I would say it is well worth visiting especially if your in the Titanic Quarter.

“Great Addition to Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is a great addition to the Titanic museum and would highly recommend to anyone going to the museum itself. Getting to see where the ship was actually fitted out was a wonderful experience. Perhaps the most amazing part of the whole museum experience was going down to the bottom of the dry dock to really see and understand with your own eyes how big the ship really was. Just like any museum anywhere in the world it does close at 5 or 6, so it is important to allow and large portion of your day to it. I hardly think it is the fault of the venue if one does not properly plan and research their vacation as a previous review would seem to suggest. The dry dock is located down the road from the museum itself. This I believe was done out of the sprit of authentication more so then poor design as the museum is build by the Titanic slip way where the ship was actually build and launched, obviously the slip way and dry dock cant be right next to each other. The museum staff is very helpful, if at anytime one becomes unsure of how to get to any museum location simply ask as I did.

“Terrible experience!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We arrived just after 3pm on a saturday, and were advised that it closes at 5pm, however it only takes 1 and a half hours to go around the whole exhibition. When we bought our tickets we didnt know where to go and felt it was badly laid out. We found that we were only half way through and had to leave. We had not got to read half of the information, and felt rushed to leave. The whole thing was a dissappointment. We were glad we had seen the Titanic film, as we would not have found out what happened otherwise.
the gift shop was also closed at 5 which meant that they did not get our custom.
