Reviewed 18 December 2012

Nice location and a great peek into the histroy of the port and the people who travelled to the rest of the world from here: The food was ok but a bit expensive for the quality. It was a bit rowdy and noisy when I ate there as there were several groups having celebrations.

“An amazing trip into the past”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

Well-organized and set up. Every visitor gets an identity pass(sex appropriate) which can be held to stations for information about when, where etc. the Woman/child/ man emigrated. Lots of information in the files. A ship is made up to walk thu giving one an idea of how sea-travel was in the late 19th early 20th centuries. Definitely worth going out of your for.

“One of the best museums I've ever been to”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

Visitors are incorporated in the topic of the museum. We stayed 3 hours in the museum and weren't bored at all. You can also look for family members who may have emigrated to the USA. They provide a computer program where you can search names and see if the people you are looking for have been on a passenger list.

There are many places where you can sit in the museum in case you are tired and many toilets on the way.

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

Perhaps I was expecting more based on what I've read. Or perhaps because I have done extensive family history research, my expectations were unrealistic. This was largely a knock off of the "you are there" mini-experience of Titanic exhibits.
