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.

    Absolutely Fascinating
    We visited Titanic Belfast on a recent trip to Belfast and it was well worth it. We opted for the White Star Premium Pass, which includes the Titanic Experience (indoors), the Discovery Tour (outdoors) and the SS Nomadic (which is only a stone's throw away), and also included a £10 voucher which could be used in the restaurant, café or gift shop. Shannon, our guide for the Discovery Tour, was very knowledgeable and informative, and the tour took in part of the Titanic Hotel, which used to be the White Star Line offices. One piece of advice I would give is to allow plenty of time, as there's so much to see and so much information to take in, but it's well worth it.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such positive feedback! I’m pleased to hear that you liked the Discover Tour. We always strive to ensure our visitor experience is of a high standard and I’m so glad you enjoyed your visit with us!

    A must for any Titanic fan
    This was our second visit. We first came to visit Titanic Belfast attraction not long after it first opened. It’s recently had a refresh of its attractions and exhibits. Tells the history of Belfast and the Titanic with lots to see and do. I would recommend at least 3 hours for a visit in order to see everything at your own pace. The only criticism I would say is it would of been nice to see the History of the other two Olympic class liners build to tie them all in together, but other then that it’s a great place with friendly helpful staff. Your entry ticket also includes entrance onto the only White Star Ship left. The Nomadic. This is a self guided tour which we did in about 30/40 mins. We also paid to do a walking tour which is separate from the main museum taking you around the outside site. Our guide John was very pleasant and informative. This was about an hour and was very good to add to your day to cover all things Titanic.

    Great museum to explore
    Nicely done museum with lots to see and do, very informative about all aspects of the titanic while also touching on other areas of the Industrial Revolution that Belfast was apart of. While in Belfast would highly recommend walking the riverside area until you get to titanic museum and then go inside museum. You need a few hours to fully immerse yourself in the history of the titanic and Belfast.

    Incredible and moving exhibition
    This is such a well-designed exhibition. From the building itself and its location in the docks right by where Titanic was built to the tour through the history of Belfast's growth to the development of the docks is utterly engaging. The story of the building of the ship is staggering in its scale. And the stories of many of the crew and passengers both those who died and who survived was very moving. The photos, artefacts, sound broadcasts and information boards really bring the whole thing to life. Highly recommended.

    Surpassed my expectations
    We were in doubt whether to visit the museum, but I am so glad we did! The history of Belfast and its industries was an interesting part of the story, and the insight into the building of the ship was amazing. I will not forget the riveter teams! Then on to the launch, the interiors, the passengers, the tragedy. Informative, sad, but a tasteful monument. Top marks!

    Impressive
    The first thing you noticed is the building. The building is the same height as the Titanic was when it was built. The inside displays are well set out, including an interactive ride. Allow quite a few hours to fully immerse yourself in this experience.

    Discovery Tour a must-do!
    We bought the White Star passes which were great value, the guided Discovery tour was our highlight of the day! Peter, our guide, was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, his tour was fun, informative and we really enjoyed it. Would return again for just for the guided tour!

    Brilliant Museum
    What a great museum. Staff are polite and helpful and Shirley our tour guide did a great job in showing us around the museum. There would have been a lot of information missed by us if we had nit been on the tour. Great place, well worth the visit.

    Wonderful for learning about the tragedy
    A very interesting walk through the history of ship building in Belfast, leading up to the launch of Titanic. The museum is done in a way that feels respectful of the tragedy and loss of life, but also shows the luxury and innovation of Titanic. Allow yourself a couple of hours at least - more at busier times! We took advantage of booking a 9.50 slot which came at a discounted price and was a much quieter time. When we had finished at around 11.45 the queues were much bigger!

Student discount system most illogical I’ve ever seen. Only available on weekdays when weekends are the only time students are free to visit, especially from outside of Belfast. Practically queued the entire way through the exhibit, which was constantly playing different sounds and audio stories over each other so it was just one big bundle of sound. Michael is an excellent staff member and the ride was excellent but wish the whole museum had been like this.

Thanks for taking the time to get in contact and I’m sorry to hear that your visit fell below expectations. We do have a plan in place to try to keep a steady flow moving through the building but nonetheless we appreciate it can get very crowded at times. We’re sorry to hear this impacted on your visit. Delighted to hear that you enjoyed the shipyard ride and that you had a good experience with our wonderful crew member, Michael. I'll be sure to pass on your comments regarding our student discount to the relevant departments and once again, can only thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

I did enjoy the Titanic museum, I’m a big fan of the Titanic so I’m glad I went and would recommend it to anyone.

However I was expecting so much more. I was slightly underwhelmed and my expectations weren’t met.

It takes you through the years starting in the 1700s showing Belfast as a city and explains why the Titanic was built there, all the way through to discovering the wreck in 1985.

I was expecting to see artefacts recovered from the wreck; maybe a life jacket, some clothes, salvaged furniture or a lifeboat. There was the odd watch or china plate here and there but nothing spectacular.

There was very little on the sinking, survivors or people lost in the disaster. I had so many unanswered questions: What happened to Captain Smith in his last moments? Thomas Andrews? The Orchestra? Has anyone tried to find the lifeboats that just miraculously disappeared?

It felt more of story being told in a modern day exhibition rather than a museum.

It’s £2 extra for a audio tour if you use your own smartphone and headphones (they did give me one of their own headsets which is usually £4). It wasn’t really needed as there’s so much to read but for the sake of £2 it’s worth it.

I did enjoy it and spent a good 4 hours in there, I learnt a lot and there was some great exhibits. The ride was enjoyable and the Nomadic experience was excellent (although you couldn’t go on the outside decks due to Covid-19) but I was expecting a lot more on the disaster.

My friend & I purchased a Titanic  experience standard ticket online in advance but decided to upgrade to the White Star pass on arrival which included the discovery guided tour & it was the best decision I've made. To be clear I do not do museum's very often at all, since being dragged round them as a child by my parents I seem to have developed a phobia & usually avoid them at all costs! This one however was different, very different, this museum I was desperate to visit since it was built, partly because I love the film & wanted to learn more about the actual Ship & partly because I visited 10 years earlier & all there was a gift shop that was closed! After we upgraded we joined one of the first guided tours of the day. Shirley was our guide & she was absolutely brilliant, she told the historical story of Titanic in such a heartwarming manner, actually making us quite tearful at one point. She was extremely detailed & knowledgeable, as if she'd experienced it all first hand. She was always checking that everyone in the group was present before she continued with the next stage/room/chapter. She was happy, friendly welcoming & helpful with any questions. Our perfect guide. This tour took about an hour & takes you into the impressive Titanic Hotel & into several different rooms where the plans were drawn. We then moved outside to view the launch area & then inside into the Titanic experience.
After the tour had finished we collected our headsets & continued the journey through Titanic's history on our own, wandering from deck to deck listening intensely to the audio. The graphics & technology involved were amazing! Interactive, entertaining & includes a ride through Titanic's complex construction processes.
This wasn't just any museum, it's carved the new future for all museums!
When we finally finished we spent time in the gift shop (a much improved one to 10 years ago I'll add!) & headed outside to the SS Nomadic. Sadly by this point we were exhausted from walking (yes there's quite a bit of it) & having realised we'd spent 5 hours, yes 5 hours walking around we decided to rest our feet & find a pub! There is food & drink available inside the museum though. We had a lovely tea break before our guided tour started! And if your lucky you may be treated to some traditional Irish dancing & music that takes place in the centre concourse.
This was an amazing experience, well worth the wait & the length of time we took to get round everything, (nearly everything, sorry  SS Nomadic!).
Good value for money too. I would definitely recommend & I would actually return! 🙂
Ps we visited just before lockdown, so things may have altered slightly since then.

We had read previous reviews of Titanic Belfast and had anticipated staying for a maximum of 3 hours.
Eventually we left after approximately 6 hours including lunch.
We bought the White Star Premium passes which included the discovery tour and a visit to SS Nomadic and we felt that it was great value considering the amount of time that we were on site.
The exhibition in itself was very informative and we learnt a lot of new things about this ill-fated voyage.
The highlight for us though was the Discovery Tour, our guide (Shirley) added the much needed human element to the story of the Titanic which was emotive at times.
The tour began with a walk through the hotel next door which had previously been the Harland & Wolff Offices, you could imagine the draughtsmen designing the ships in the natural light provided by the sky lights.
We moved on to the offices of key H&W staff and Shirley's account really brought it back to life for us.
We walked around the outside of the building, seeing the key architectural features and how they related to the titanic herself.
On moving into the building Shirley once again excelled at bringing this story to life.
After a lovely lunch in the Pantry we ventured on to the SS Nomadic. Once again we were greeted by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable member of staff who told us more about the vessel which is the last remaining White Star vessel and gave us a feel of what the Titanic would have been like all of the years ago.
10/10 I would definitely recommend this venue.

We bought the £19 tickets which includes access to the tender ship Nomadic in the dry dock outside. The Titanic experience itself was located in an impressive building located at the end of the slipways where the actual ship and its sister ship were built. Visitors walk through the exhibition which takes you through the history of the area, the people that built the ship, details of the cabins and internal fit out, the people on board, the collision and the aftermath and includes interactive areas and even a 'ride' through the ship while its being built. One of our party was wheelchair bound and was able to use an electric scooter to go round the exhibition and there were plenty of lifts available. After the exhibition we visited the coffee shop prior to going round the Nomadic which is in a dry dock a short distance outside.

Went to the Titanic Museum in Belfast yesterday as my daughter was doing the subject at school. We were lucky enough to be able to get booked on the White Star Premium guided tour with Rob who was an absolutely fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable and his personality really brought it all to life, he got the kids and adults involved.
The galleries were also really good and if you go to them after the tour it really helps you to understand what each part is showing. The ticket also got us access to the SS Nomadic which was also staffed with very knowledgeable, passionate people who clearly love what they do.
The cafe is stocked with lovely cakes and freshly made foods, definitely worth a visit. The gift shop is well stocked and reasonably priced.
In all it was a very enjoyable day and I would thoroughly recommend it.
Well done Rob and all the team who brought this tragic story to life with compassion and empathy.

My husband and I visited the titanic museum and were very glad we pre-booked as saw lots of people being politely turned away at the doors. All the staff were friendly and helpful with ensuring social distancing was maintained.
The museum itself is great- starting with learning about the history of Belfast and the ship building industry and then the titanic part. The references made to those that died was respectful and there are recordings of survivors voices that was very moving.
The museum is well executed with videos and interactive displays.
We were however very disappointed that we couldn’t visit the Normadic. We were led to believe we could go on the boat but it was closed up and no staff or signage was available to explain if it had closed early or was closed due to social distancing not being feasible on board.
I wouldn’t visit again but wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the museum to any new visitors.

Five of us booked for afternoon tea to celebrate my wife’s birthday. When we arrived we were shown to a table which was big enough for 10 or more, so it was difficult to converse, as some were quite distant from one another. We waited for about 20 minutes before we got our teas, and about 25 minutes before we got our food. Unfortunately some of the sandwiches were a little dried up. Others seemed very fresh.
Apart from the above, the tea, scones and cakes were good, and the room is very nice. However, at the price charged, we felt that we didn’t really get value for money.

Belfast has an absolute gem here. I recommend booking in advance particularly in Covid times to avoid disappointment.Engaging from the minute you start your tour, gives a balanced and complete history of the city, socially and commercially. The ski car trip to the bowels of the ship during its construction was epic, brought it all to life. Families, history and movie lovers will enjoy!

This exhibition was everything I wanted it to be and more.

The galleries were imaginative and informative, the layout was easy to follow, and some of the interactive exhibits were fun.

We were extremely impressed that the exhibition included some background to Belfast's historical industries, and how the shipyards grew and became the main source of income for so many families.

Many of the exhibits focus on the social and economic structure of the time, the planning and construction of Titanic and the aftermath of the sinking. The disaster is, of course, covered, but in a low key and respectful way.

Don't go and see this exhibition if all you're interested in is the sinking of the ship, but I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone who has an interest in the whole picture!
