Owner description: 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.

Visited Titanic Quarter today. Went down the pump house and dry dock. Amazing place , really feel the history and the size of the dry dock really puts the size of the ships into perspective.

You get to not only experience the whole life of Titanic from conception through to today with expeditons visiting the wreck site, but you also learn about how Belfast became a hive for international Imports and Exports.

The Shipyard ride and interactive panels are very high tech and the use of technology really makes the experience memorable.

The first thing that hits you is how amazing the building is driving up to it. You can park at their underground carpark and make your way up from there. Its was no dearer than the other surrounding car parks and was easier as I had my partner with knee trouble along with me. So it was ok to take a lift ect all access is very good for disbilities.

The building on the inside is just as jaw dropping as the outside. There are panel that match the same size and length of the titanics riveted panels, there are some great wee shops. However I would warn you not to go into the downstairs restaurant as its really picey. Its much better to grab a tea and a scone after the wee ride around the ship.( BTW its a fab part of the attraction) All the cutlery and cups are replicas of the white star lines with the monogram of the company.

What does take time to get around the vast space is the amount of information. However this isnt a bad thing, its necessary to understand the story from titanics inception to its last gasp and the aftermath from the familes and the enquiry.Its a very detailed day indeed.

I wouldnt recommend this for small kids under 8 as they would get bored quickly

There is a part that as you are having a great time reasing the history that will strike you to remind you what an awful tradgedy it was...and if you visit Belfast it still is.
There are plenty of reminders of the ship building here. And as I live here and moved over from England 5 years ago it still fasinates me now.

On one of the walls in the attraction(while reading the copius info) there is a photo of a dead victim of the distaster laid out on a boat, fished out of the water semi clothed with a pastor. Its vivid and hits home this is not just a day out. it was someones life once.

Amazing to learn so much and it took us a good four or so hours to visit every level so make sure you book at least two weeks before hand as they tickets go quick and leave enough time, and cash to but something in the shops.

A visit to this museum was planned long time ago due to the "wonderful" reviews the press did, so when a couple of friends came to Dublin, I thought that was the right occasion to organize a trip to Belfast. From outside, the architecture of the museum is impressive and really gives the impression to board on the famous transatlantic while entering in the building but this is, perhaps, the only strong emotion beside the price of the ticket. Honestly, 15 GBP ? I paid 10 Euro to visit the Louvre in Paris! Well, for that price, the exhibition offers several slides show and photos to be "admired" in less than 1 hour. A good documentary/ DVD on the Titanic can give a better and exciting experience.

I am a 17 year old girl who is very interested in history and the Titanic, so of course I was very excited to go here, it was terrible, I felt so let down. There was virtually nothing about the sinking, there were details on the information boards that were wrong (such as wireless operator Harold Bride's name) and it all just felt like a money spinning scheme rather than anything that anyone could really enjoy. The exhibition on at the Transport museum is much smaller and in fact much better than Titanic Belfast, such a let down. Though I am looking forward to the SS Nomadic being opened again, I was on it before it was done up and I am looking forward to seeing it again. But on the thought of the main Titanic Belfast, it was far too expensive and I could have made a better visitor centre.
