About
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.

    Well-curated museum
    The Titanic museum was very well curated. It painted a moving and comprehensive picture of Harland and Wolff (H and W) shipyards at the time and thier impact on Belfast. The sinking of the Titanic was factual (unlike the fictional movie) but also moving, as it should be.

    Absolutely fascinating.
    This is a must see for anyone visiting Belfast and with even a remote interest in the story of Titanic. The first galleries tell the background & history of the city. But it's the later galleries, after the "shipyard ride" which really stand out. The final couple of galleries with the voices of survivors and the role call of names of the rescued and those who perished, along with the sound and light show are moving beyond belief. Try to get there early for a leisurely visit and to avoid school groups! It's also interesting to stroll around the surrounding area to get a feel for the size of the dockyards. Nearby you also get a view of the giant cranes known as Samson & Goliath.

    An interesting take on a timeless story
    Most of us are familiar with the tale of the Titanic. we had been to a couple of Titanic museums in the United States. this particular Museum was unusual for a couple of reasons, but primarily due to the location, as the museum is found in the shipyards where the Titanic was built. first off, if you are planning to visit this Museum you need to get tickets ahead of time. we traveled in March and, due to our experience in visiting museums around the world, we purchase tickets months in advance. we arrived at the Museum almost 2 hours ahead of our scheduled visitation time, and wre told that the museum was sold out and there was no way for us to enter the exhibit any earlier than the time on our tickets. and this was not even high tourist season. the museum does a very good job in describing the ship building industry in Belfast and how the Titanic came into existence. if anything the exhibit spends more time detailing the construction of the ship, then it's demise. there is also a fair amount of focus on the individuals who perished, and those that survived. there is a short section on Bob Ballard's original Expedition that successfully found the Titanic's resting place. it is probably the Best Titanic exhibit I have visited, and well worth your time should you be in Belfast. recommended

    A decent museum
    Lots of information and nicely laid out. Good customer service and a unique experience to be where it launched itself. Thought there could have been more personal information but overall, a nice way to spend an hour or so.

    Informative and Touching
    The museum does a really nice job of putting you in early 20th century Belfast and understanding what life would have been like. It has a nice touch of history, personal stories, artifacts, recreations, and information. You should definitely set aside a few hours and check it out.

    Fantastic museum!
    We only had a day to tour Belfast. We chose two activities. This was one of them. The museum did an excellent job of presenting how the Titantic was built and the roles the local industry also played in providing materials. They also tell the story of some of the passengers. All of this is presented in such an engaging way! Highly recommend!

    Very Moving Experience.
    We did not plan enough time to really see this exhibit. If you have the time plan on 4 hours. We really enjoyed this experience and it's nothing like any of the travelling exhibits. Very in depth about the building, launching and sinking of the Titanic along with some history of Belfast.

    An enlightenng experience
    At the beginning of our visit we were rather concerned about the crowded galleries and the difficulty in reading the many static display boards. However, once we went upstairs, the cable car ride and the moving images gave a fascinating idea of how the Titanic was constructed, its size and what it would have been like to sail on her. The later stages of the museum didn't shy away from the questions about how those in charge of the ship made their decisions, and my enduring memory of my visit will be the dreadful and needless of so many lives. The last exhibit, where you appear to be floating just above the wreck, is relatively new and brings into sharp focus the futility of 5 lives lost two weeks before our visit, when a small submarine, en route to see the remains of the Titanic, failed to return to the surface. I expect every one will come away with their own views and memories but be prepared to be shocked and surprised. My advice is to book ahead and go early to minimise queuing.

    Definitely a great 'Experience'
    We bought the White Star Passes which were well worth the money. LOVED The Titanic Experience - well presented but would highly recommend the audio guide. We had lunch at the Pantry - good value and lovely stew and chowder. We did the Nomadic but not overly impressed compared to the presentation of the main Experience. Our highlight was the guided Discovery Tour with Peter - went to the Titanic Hotel and saw the history. Peter was a fantastic guide with lots of information and he took us to places we would not normally be able to access.

    Titanic story from beginning to end
    This is a must see if you visit Belfast. Allow at least two hours and we were advised to book in advance. It illustrates the story of the Titanic from beginning to tragic end. You can get to it from the open top bus on/off bus tour although there was a queue to get back into central Belfast when we were there. I used the Audio tour which was very interesting and if you are a glasses wearer like myself it saves you from having to get close up to display information boards which is not always easy in a busy museum.

Probably one of the best museums I’ve ever been to. Really immersive and informative, but engaging at the same time. Loved the mini ‘ride’ in the middle. My second time going and I wouldn’t hesitate going a third time. If you like history/engineering/local history this is definitely for you!

We did the white star tour and were so glad we did, so much we learned about the titanic, went across the road to the hotel sat in the meeting room etc. our guide pip? Was outstanding. Highly recommend appending a little bit more $ to do this tour prior to entering the museum.

Absolutely brilliant experience. We went early in day and unlike other reviews found the crowd and ticketing worked fine. Such an immersive experience and a homage to the people who built the titanic whilst also very respectful to those whose lives were lost…And our conversation with Pip one of the guides was just the perfect way to round out our experience - make sure you take the time to experience it fully.

As a titanic fanatic this place was just perfect. We did the guided tour then spent 3 hours walking round the gallery.
Melissa, our guide, was very fun and she told the story well. She was also very passionate about Belfast in general, and could she sold it to us really well! It’s a must visit museum, you just can’t comprehend what happened but this place defo brings it to life. To walk where the ship built, to see real artefacts recovered from the wreck and here the real stories from survivors is truly a wonderful but also sad and solemn experience

This exhibition seems expensive at first but after 4 hours of visit you come away appreciating how the titanic was built and who the passengers were. There is a lot of information to read or listen to but you do not need the audio guides.

This is such an amazing tour, a true tribute to this amazing ship and all who contributed to its creation. The tour begins with the building of the ship, to its launch, to its sad end. It was a moving experience, full of awe and wonder. Also, go back after dark, they light up the outside, it is simply breathtaking. This is a must have if you are in Belfast.

First time to Belfast , after seeing the Liverpool titanic museum we decided we had to see the real one !
It was fantastic, really informative , we did the self guided tour and learned an awful lot
Only 1 regret , we should have asked for the audio , didn’t know what it was before hand not really offered to us and regret it as I thing there was probably more we didn’t learn
Great experience

I’d describe the entire visit with superlatives but it’s all been said before. I highly recommend that you also pay the (current) £4 per person for the audio tour device. Having been through the tour before without it I can definitely say that it is worth the money to gain more thorough insights of the whole tour.
Set aside 2 hours, especially during high season, and you will fill the time easily.
There are a limited number of lockers to store your coat(s) or small backpack. Useful for sure. The Hop On Hop Off bus stop is not obvious if you have walked to the building but the helpful and friendly staff will point you to it.

This museum/experience is so wonderful that I’ve stopped in twice (and will probably go back again). My first visit was a self-guided tour and my second visit included the guided tour option. Both experiences were wonderful and it really just depends on how much money you’re looking to spend and how much time you have in the area.

If you’re a Titanic fanatic and can fit it into your schedule, I would absolutely recommend going for the extended option that includes a guided tour at the start. Otherwise, it is still all too easy to spend 90-120 minutes exploring the exhibits on your own.
