THE REAL STORY OF THE TITANIC, AT AN ICONIC ATTRACTION, IN THE CITY WHICH MADE HER
Titanic Belfast is an iconic six-storey building featuring 9 interpretive and interactive galleries that explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of Titanic as well as the city which made her. It is the world's largest Titanic exhibition.
The Titanic Belfast Experience is a dramatic, innovative and exciting presentation of the real story of Titanic. Extending over nine galleries, this state-of-the-art exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the life of Titanic, from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to her famous maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.
The journey continues into the aftermath of the sinking through to the discovery of the wreck and into the future with live undersea exploration. Creating a sense of encounter with the real people who built and sailed on the Titanic brings visitors closer to the story in meaningful and memorable ways. There are multiple dimensions to the exhibition which draws together imagery, objects, reconstructions, audio-visual presentations and interactive features to explore the Titanic story in a fresh insightful way.
In 1908 two new giant slipways were built and the enormous Arrol Gantry erected to prepare for the construction of the Titanic. At the Titanic Experience you can ascend a replica of one of the huge pillars of the Arrol Gantry to embark on the Shipyard Ride – an electronic dark ride that uses special effects, animations and full-scale reconstructions to recreate the reality of shipbuilding in the early 1900s. It's not to be missed!
