The Titanic Museum in Belfast, Northern Ireland

We drove 1.5 hours from Dublin to get to Belfast City. We tried looking for a place to eat but since it was Sunday, everything was closed.

If you’re driving around Belfast, you can’t miss the Titanic Museum. The building is so big and absolutely gorgeous.

We had a nice lunch inside then headed to the exhibits. The museum covered the topics of Belfast’s boom in the industry in the early 1900s then moved on to the ship building industry and how the making of The Titanic started. Exhibits covered the launching of The Titanic to virtual tours of the ship to personal stories of survivors. The museum was interactive, there were a lot of touchscreen guides, videos on walls, and what surprised me the most was a ride within the museum (it was just a slow 3 minute ride but it was interesting nonetheless).

This may have been the first museum that I really read all the information.
