Great place. I was really impressed. It is a very interactive museum and I must say pretty cheap considering all what you get for your money. At the beginning I didn't expect much even though I read somewhere it was considered the most visited (or best, I can't remember) museum in the world for the previous year, but by the end of the day I wished I had more time to spend in it. The part that impressed me the most was the section with all the last messages of help they sent and all the replies they got.
Definitely worth visiting even if you're not a fan of museums. The standard of presentation and the sheer amount of information available is breathtaking. You can choose between a guided tour, worth the admission fee alone, or take your time and go round on your own. Park in the Odessy car park, where 6 hours parking will cost you £4 (July 2018). It's a maximum 5 minute walk to the Titanic museum by walking through the W5 complex (SSE arena). You've also got a few hotels you can walk in off the street and grab a quick drink. They've been restored amazingly well. There's the HMS Caroline, SS Nomadic (last White Star ship used to ferry upper class passengers to the Titanic). You could spend the best part of a day in the Titanic Quarter and not be bored. Or, make sure to visit the Titanic museum whilst on the Belfast Bus tours. Buses return every 30 minutes so you can spend several hours at the museum, hop back on the bus and continue into town for lunch before continuing your bus tour. The Titanic played a big part in Belfast's history, but as the locals will tell you, "skippered by an Englishman, Navigated by a Welshman, engineering run by a Scotsman, built by the Irish in Belfast but she was fine when she left us".
We have wanting to visit this museum for a long time as my 12 Yr old is titanic mad and it didn't disappoint. Really well thought out layout, good interactive displays and lots of staff around to ask questions. Good trail for kids. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and value for money. Large outside area where you can actually stand on the place titanic was built. Would definitely visit again, so close to the airport and hotels nearby so we could walk to the museum.
Absolutely Great place to visit. Extremely informative. The absolute best part was The Discovery Tour. We had Garreth as our tour guide and the guy was funny (in a dry way) and just passionate about what he was doing and saying. He really brought the human element to the situation and made one truly Think by painting the perfect picture for us to think and feel as if we were there. Extremely worth the £15 (students) and his tour was £9; I tipped €5 for this great service and story telling.
I'm always weary of sites that are built to attract visitors but this is a must see in Belfast. The Titanic Experience is more than a museum. It's brilliant, shiny exterior stands out in the industrial setting and once you enter you are immediately captivated by the various displays. It takes you step by step through the history of shipbuilding in Belfast and through the events that led up to the Titanic disaster.. Everything was well thought out and there were many interactive exhibits. They've even added a scavenger hunt for young children that my son loved. At the end of which he received a certificate showing that he had completed it. I also appreciated seeing the tour of the boat that ferried passengers to the Titanic. It made you feel like you were a part of it's history.
If you're visiting Belfast, you NEED to visit the Titanic museum. The museum offers so much knowledge, not only of the Titanic itself but of the history of Belfast and the industry that existed there. The layout of the museum is perfect and each section flows expertly into the next, helping to set the tone and tell the narrative of the story. The staff were so friendly and offered even more information to all visitors. There is so much information contained in this museum that I think to read everything you would need to spend an entire day there, however the interactive displays allow you to read as much or as little as you wish, meaning you can choose how deep you wish to delve. The section that covers the sinking is incredibly moving and very respectfully done. Both my partner and I had goosebumps while we were in this room. Even just the exterior of the building is beautifully done. The cafe also offers incredible food at a very reasonable price. My partner and I had the seafood chowder and a piece of cake, both of which were delicious. The ticket cost does also cover entrance to another boat nearby, but unfortunately we ran out of time and were unable to visit. To summarise, this museum is amazing and worth every penny of the entrance fee. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Belfast as a must see before they leave.
It was good, but not as good as I expected. There was a lot on show which was positive, but there wasn’t anything really engaging. It was also very hot and packed with people, but I expected that. The real issue was that it the experience was just average. Beautiful exterior though. The staff in the cafe were not great and struggled with a very basic order (tea and a toasted sandwich). They must have been new as they couldn’t work the machine properly. The two servers looked like they had been left without proper support or training. So it’s worth a trip, but doesn’t live up to its reputation or entry fee.
Well presented Titanic story with good use of audio visual technologies including a short 'ride' through part of the Titanic construction site. Lots of good photographs with text and audio commentary alongside interactive displays. The balance between the human and more technical aspects of the Titanic story was good giving the experience wide appeal. Initially appeared to be a bit expensive, but it was easy to lose just over an hour working our way through the experience and we didn't read everything or look at every display. A perfect place to spend time if the weather isn't good and you are interested in the Titanic.
There’s a ride that was pretty cool. It was well organized but I guess I was expecting something more. Like an explanation of some of the things that were found in the ship. Make sure to make reservations for tea ahead of time because the day we went were sold out and they don’t let you go up to that floor to take pics for the entry replica.
The Titanic museum has a lot of great information, and although the building is large the design makes the flow of people bottleneck and some information hard to find and read. Assembly ride was great, as were the artifacts. Biggest wish was that information could have been distilled down a bit so not so much reading was necessary and people could move through the exhibition more quickly without so much congestion. All in all, would recommend - especially if you are a fan of the movies, the era, or maritime history. Also, check out the Titanic Hotel across the street. Addition exhibits and information without the people.
It is no wonder that this museum was rated the Number 1 Tourist Attraction in the world in 2016! A well-organized and in-depth piece of history that I would recommend to anyone! I would budget at least three hours though, if you want to see and do everything inside, which you might as well do since you are already there. I also recommend the bundle ticket that allows you to board the SS Nomadic.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Deservedly has won awards for top visitor attraction in Europe and worldwide. Absolutely worth and easily a days visit. Do take the audio guide, which is very enjoyable and makes it just that wee bit easier to take it all in! This huge exhibition is an immersive feast in the Titanic and its legacy, the industrial heritage of Belfast and indeed Ireland, the craftsmanship of shipbuilding and outfitting, the journeys of different sorts of folk travelling or migrating. There's an exciting 'ride' which is very much worth the quickly moving 10/15 minute queue. DO IT! Do it all!
I actually got to go here for a work function and it was a great event space. The staircase replica from the Titanic makes a great backdrop for any type of formal event. The crockery with the white star line logo is a nice flashback and really adds to making this place a unique experience. The food was great and the only suggestion for an improvement would be to allow guests to experience some of the museum, only some because then it would make you want to come back and do the whole thing. Overall had a great time there and really enjoyed the space for an event. Something different!
My husband and I had a blast. We went first thing in the morning, because we had gone the afternoon before and there was quite the crowd. I'm so glad we went early. We had reserved our tickets online, which was easy to print out at a machine. We barely waited in line for the ride. I felt the first exhibit before the ride was so so, but the ride and subsequent exhibits we're very impressive.
The museum is not about only Titanic but shows Belfast past on textile and ship building industry. Very well managed and very educational. There are 3d experience of the whole Titanic and also you can feel the vibration in the ship. Virtual Reality has been implemented very nicely. I felt the price of the ticket was worth the visit.
The Titanic Centre in Belfast is first class. The welcome from staff was very pleasant with drinks reception (including soft drinks) on arrival for our fund raising event. Access to the Ball Room was quick and easy for the 260 guests. Table service was quick and relaxed. The food was exquisite and courses were nicely paced with portions that were filling without being too much. The audio visuals worked really well and the entertainment was very suitable to the venue. The staircase was a very popular feature for photographs. Parking on arrival and departure was very smooth. A great place to hold events that is highly recommended.
I visited here today as I'd booked a Titanic Experience online. It is a fantastic building and very well designed! Staff are very friendly and helpful. The only problem I had was the price of the food and items in the gift shop. Food pricing was quite expensive as was the items in the gift shop. The experience itself was fantastic, my favourite parts was the ride which takes you through the shipyard times at Harland and Wolff and also the wreckage. Very moving experience too as you heard the voices of the actual survivors of the Titanic. Highly recommend this exhibition.
Absolutely fantastic place to visit. Devote a good bit of time because you will need it. There is so much to read and see. There are great interactive screens that allow kids to solve quizzes and answer questions. I enjoyed myself a lot :) Highly recommended or even a most see place :)
A must see attraction in Belfast. Cannot rate the experience and attraction highly enough. Well thought out exhibition and experiences, exceeding our expectations. If you want to experience the Titanic, then this is the place to go. Although I understand the Titanic is now over 100yrs old, and so a preserved site, I strongly feel that recovery of the whole (remaining wreck) should be made, at some future point, and cherished on the slipways outside this Titanic exhibition - before it is lost forever. This would be a very fitting act of rememberance.
It's been a dream of mine to visit the birthplace of the most famous ship in the world and stepping foot on the slipway was an almost spiritual experience for me. The Experience, feet away from where the Titanic and Olympic (and Britannic) were built, is an incredible and informative journey from the early days of Belfast and the docks through to the aforementioned ships and beyond. An absolute must for anyone with a love for Titanic. Just to add, if you get the chance, go and visit the Nomadic; the ONLY remaining White Star vessel in existence today, built on the same yard, using the same steel and rivets, the second ship builders as the three sister ships. A humbling experience
Absolutely breathtaking! The outside of the museum is designed to look like the ship itself and it truly gives you an idea of the size of the Titanic. The museum is so informative and begins with the history of the companies that built the Titanic. I don't want to give too much away about what's inside but the whole thing was truly brilliant! Obviously the on site restaurant was quite pricey so taking a packed lunch is recommended. We spent about 2.5 hours there and we rushed the end to make our flights. I highly recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to return. The SS Nomadic is also worth a visit while you're there.
Absolutely fantastic weekend visiting the Titanic museum. Gayle onboard the nomadic was amazing. It was lovely to see someone so passionate about what they do and she was funny too! My 6 year old, Cosmo, already wants to go back, he loves it. The souvenir shop has hundred of different things from lettings to clothes to gorgeous painting and models. Would have moved to book onto the afternoon tea experience in the Titanic suite with grand staircase, but our flight home would have been missed. Absolutely fantastic place, highly recommended to anyone, young and old. We will be back!
