Have to disagree with the reviewer who said it consists of several slide shows and photos, it is so much more. The museum starts by portraying life in Belfast at the time Titanic was built - this is done via exhibits, film, virtual people. It goes on to the financing and building of the ship. This part includes a ride around a mock-up of the hull so you can see exactly how it is being constructed. There was quite a lot of info to take in so we went on this ride twice (no queues luckily). After seeing pictures and recreated footage of the ship being launched, there is information about some of the passengers and crew on board. Then the stops at Southampton, Cove and Cherbourg and the people who had lucky escapes by getting off at Cherbourg. The sinking is shown on giant screens with sound effects and there are the ship's communication with other ships in the area. It is very moving and there are stories about individual passengers and crew. There is then a bit about the investigation and recommendations for maritime regulation. Finally you can walk over a glass floor, looking through to a film of the sea bed (taken by a camera in a submersible) at the actual wreck of the Titanic. Whole thing = amazing. We didn't bother with the audio guide and booked on-line in advance which gave a small price reduction.
