Northern Ireland- Titanic Belfast

Belfast has given Ireland another reason to go to Belfast. Titanic Belfast. The building is striking as is the dry dock area where Titanic was launched. Titanic Belfast has 4 floors containing 9 galleries.

While it’s worth the drive from Dublin, I wouldn’t fly to Belfast or plan a vacation around Titanic Belfast. It’s good but not great with need for some refinement. Better signage, more short video and more Titanic artifacts. The exhibit is equally a history of Belfast. There’s nothing wrong with that but the Titanic is only a part of its history. The biggest issue – why did it take so long to create Titanic Belfast? Who knows but if you are a Titanic “fan”, you’ll like it.
