Titanic Belfast is a six-floor building featuring nine interpretive and interactive galleries that explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of Titanic, as well as the City and people which made her.

It is the world’s largest Titanic exhibition.

Titanic Belfast tells the story of the Titanic, from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to her famous maiden voyage and tragic end.

The story is brought up to the present with the discovery of the wreck and with live links to contemporary undersea exploration.

Using innovative design, interpretation and technology, including CGI, film and video, audio, archival materials, objects and scale models, each gallery will focus on a unique part of the Titanic story and the context of the period in which it was built.

Visitors also encounter individuals with stories to tell, many of them Belfast people.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is the Shipyard Ride, which allows visitors to gain an insight into the scale of the construction endeavour, the volume of men, materials and hours required.

Visitors can also experience the reality of the ship’s interiors with a 3D cave that allows visitors to ‘walk’ the corridors of the ship. Titanic Quarter

Titanic Quarter is one of Europe’s largest urban waterfront regeneration schemes, transforming a 185-acre site on the banks of Belfast’s River Lagan into a new mixed use maritime quarter with a mile of water frontage.

The development consists of residential accommodation, office space, hotels, academic activities and leisure, retail and heritage space.

A co-promotion between Titanic Quarter Ltd and Belfast Harbour, it is anticipated that over 20,000 people will work or live in the £7bn plus Titanic Quarter development upon completion.

Titanic Quarter is located upon former shipbuilding land from which vessels such as the RMS Titanic, Olympic and SS Canberra were launched.

It will become a major social and business meeting place with galleries, theatres, parklands and water sports all easily connected to Belfast's thriving city centre and the George Best Belfast City Airport.
