“Wish we had went sooner!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Fantastic building, really impressive from the outside and just as impressive inside!!
We purchased the adult tickets with the pump house included and took the audio as well-really helpful. The pictures on the walls get you in the spirit of what things were like back when the Titanic was being built and how Belfast looked it was buzzing!
Lots of interactive screens with info on them-great for kids and adults alike! The trip on the cars to watch how the riveting was done was amazing the noise was deafening. There's 1st 2nd and 3rd class bedrooms behind glass screens which made for great talking points, the passengers must have travelled light!! The detail in the craftsmanship is next to none fantastic to see and makes you feel very proud. The last part of the tour takes in the sinking of the Titanic,pictures and recordings of passengers voices-you'd be very hard if it didn't move you to tears! We loved every minute of the tour inside, we then moved outside and took the short walk to the pump house, worth the 10 minute walk. This was the place Titanic was fitted out in dry dock, it's enormous, the depth and length of the dry dock has to be seen to be believed. Amazing day out and we will return, thank you Titanic Belfast keep up the great work!

“Impressive and informative about not only the ship but the city of Belfast”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We booked in advance online for a Saturday afternoon and saved some money by so doing. Exhibition building easily reached by public transport from city centre . The first section being about the history of the linen industry and the industrialisation of Belfast very interesting and informative. Then on to exhibits as to the construction of and the fitting out of this luxurious vessel which too were informative before the poignant section on the fateful voyage and the tragedy of the sinking. A good section too on the official inquiries in USA and UK taught much, too.A Good half day outing which all who visit Belfast should visit

“Interesting exhibition”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Overall Titanic Belfast is a very well presented exhibition outlined the preparation of Titanic, its ill fated voyage and subsequent salvage operations. There is a ride which provides an experience of going around a simulation of the famous Harland and Wolfe shipyard. Frontline staff were welcoming and stored our case. However everything was very expensive with a whole host of surcharges. Not allowing non commercial photography detracts from the experience. Signage from Titanic Quarter Station could be improved. This was a grown up family trip.

“Wonderful Exhibition”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I recommend you book your slot on-line before you arrive to avoid delays. There is ample under ground parking under the building. The exhibition is very comprehensive covering all the details of the Titanic, its building, fitting out, sailing, sinking and finding the wreck. The exhibition also covers the History of Belfast city at the time and the industries set up there to support the ship building. It takes between 2 and 2 1/2 hours to tour the exhibition. There is a coffee shop and bistro onsite though I felt the seating in both areas was very tight and the selection of sandwiches limited.
If you are going here with a family I strongly recommend you make a full day of it and visit the W5 Hands on Science exhibition in the adjacent Odyssey building. Start with the W5 and allow at least 3 hours there before going over to the Titanic.

“Fascinating morning.”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

A really interesting morning following the development of Belfast and the construction of the Titanic. It was nice to see there was an emphasis on the city itself and role it played not just in the Titanic but in the development of shipbuilding in general. There had been a lot of care taken to reflect the pride that the city had, and has, in itself and the role it played in the world. There were only a couple of actual relics from the disaster (I imagine that these would be far too expensive to get hold of these days!) but there were sound recordings of survivors and reading the transcripts of the messages that were sent backwards and forwards while the ship was sinking was chilling. There's a great area near the end where you can stand on a glass floor and watch a film of a submarine camera moving above the wreck. I went to the Titanic exhibition that toured round a few years ago which was full of objects that had been lifted from the wreck and I found it rather ghoulish and intrusive. This was much more of a celebration of people, acheivements and consequences than the story of a disaster.
It's a bit of a long walk from the centre and I'd get a cab if I'd had kids with me but it's well worth the visit.! Easy to navigate round (we had a friend in a wheelchair as well) and the staff were very helpfull. Great giftshop and the burgers in the restaurant were fab!

Many thanks for giving us such good feedback which I'll make sure to pass on to the rest of the team.

We definitely share your view in relation to housing actual relics recovered from the wreck site. We believe that Titanic's resting place is a grave site that should be left untouched - this view is shared with our partner Dr. Robert Ballard who discovered Titanic's wreck in 1985. For this reason, artefacts salvaged from Titanic do not form part of our exhibition, and as you mentioned, our story is really one of celebration and commemoration.

Thanks again for taking a few moments to share your review! Very much appreciated!
