Titanic Belfast is an iconic six-floor building featuring nine interpretive and interactive galleries that explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of the Titanic. Located where the ship was originally created in 1912, the exhibition follows the story of the Titanic, from her conception in Belfast, through her construction and launch, to her famous maiden voyage and subsequent place in history. Using innovative design, interpretation and technology, each of the nine galleries focuses on a unique part of the Titanic story and the context of the period in which it was built.
Visitors follow a self-guided tour by foot and by rides through nine galleries:
- Boomtown Belfast - the city at the start of the 20th century
- The Shipyard - a mini-car ride up and around the rudder
- The Launch - how the Titanic was launched
