Titanic Museum

Belfast and the Titanic

A degree of uncertainty and doubt about the weather, caused us to doubt our Rathlin Island trip - and instead we headed to Belfast where we could go and see the highly recommended Titanic Exhibition.

Driving from the Antrim Coast into Belfast went smoothly - but then our in-phone routing system started getting a little crazy. Several laps of Belfast City centre and the Crumlin road area later - we were parked and checked into the hotel.

After a quick web-site update - we were off again for a nibble and a glass (or two) of the local brew.

Titanic exhibition

The dock area in Belfast has been very nicely upgraded and cleaned up. Standing just in front of where Titanic was originally built in the slips - close to the Iconic Harland and Wolf crane is the Titanic Exhibition centre.

The outside of the building I think is already iconic - Dora just wanted to add her seal of approval to it.

We arrived just as it opened - yet already there were people ahead of us. The cost of a ticket was rather a shock at £17/per person, and there was an additional £8/pp for a tour of the surrounding area. Alas the "extra" tour was already fully booked.

Exhibition

WOW I think sums the exhibition. It has some of the best A/V, interactive displays - combined with nice staff and a layout that is world class. Top Marks.
