You need a full morning or afternoon to do this museum justice. It is located in an impressive old maritime station complex and the great entrance hall contains a number of old submarines and a well stocked gift shop. The Titanic Exhibition begins in the large baggage handling room with clever interactive video features then proceeds to the exhibition proper. It is a very different approach to that taken in the museum in Liverpool and the recreations of parts of the ship are quite interesting but the large video wall was rather less than exciting and I am not sure quite what purpose it served. The tour of the decommissioned nuclear submarine was areal highlight - the audio guide was informative and detailed without being over long. The aquarium is full of beautiful (and less beautiful) coloured fish and related displays and there are other exhibits as well all relating to the sea and submarines. I was not able to do the virtual reality ride so cannot comment on that. In all I wanted more time there than I had. An excellent family venue for anyone arriving via the ferry from the UK. Only the price prevents me giving 5 stars.
