The Titanic Museum in Belfast

The sinking of the Titanic is the most famous shipwreck in history. The ocean liner began its voyage from the port of Southampton and sank hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15/4/1912.

The ship was built at the Belfast shipyard in Northern Ireland, so a museum was built there with the largest exhibition of the Titanic in the world.

The six-storey building, an architectural masterpiece, includes nine interactive galleries with sounds, images, smells and stories from the Titanic and the people who built the ship.

The presentation tells the story of the ship, from the first day of its construction to its voyage, shipwreck and the stories of the survivors.

Visitors are transported back in time, to the early 1900s, when the construction of the largest and most luxurious ship in the world began.
