Everyone heard about Titanic and I am sure that a lot already saw the movie staring Leo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet..."you jump, i jump, remember?" ... but what about the real story and what happened beyond the movie. If you want to find out more about how it was built and different things regarding the discovery as well as the story of people who traveled with it, you should definitely go visit this museum.
If you are not coming with a tour company, buy your tickets online it saves you time and maybe even some money :) The post won't give you details about what you will see inside as you should check the museum out yourself, I would definitely say it is worth it. I'll share some pictures, but keep in mind this is a super modern museum, so experiencing it is the key to enjoying it as it is built in a very interactive way.
Throughout the visit don't be surprised if you get goosebumps as it is very touching to discover all the details of this incredible unfortunate event.
"The titanic sinks with, 1800 on board; only 675, mostly women and children saved" (The New York Herald)
The building's design is intended to reflect Belfast's history of shipmaking and the industrial legacy bequeathed by Harland & Wolff. Its angular form recalls the shape of ships' prows, with its main "prow" angled down the middle of the Titanic and Olympic slipways towards the River Lagan. Alternatively, it has been suggested that the building looks like an iceberg, and locals have already nicknamed it "The Iceberg" (Source)
The experience will give you a deeper view of the story of titanic, the people that were on board and how the ship looks under the see. It is not easy information to take in but it's a place that will make you understand more about everything that meant Titanic.

P.S. we visited the museum as part of the Paddy Wagon day trip from Dublin to Belfast. More on that I will share in an upcoming post. â
