Reasons for trip

We bought online early morning tickets at £15 each – for the 9.15am entry which was the latest you could enter at this price. It was deserted for about 15 mins and then it got busy very quickly. I was happy to spend £15 but think £19 is overpriced. I did spend a lot of time at the very first part which is made up of giant old photographs that change and there are silhouetted people walking along as if in the street. Seeing the photos of the old streets and buildings at such a large scale felt like time travel to me. We enjoyed the ride through the simulation of the dock yard. There is a lot of information to read and we didn’t take the audio guide and spent around 3 hours looking at everything. The exhibition is about the building of the ship in the main, lots of diagrams and specifications. Another favourite part of mine was towards the end when they had recreated rooms from the ship and had items that would have been on the ship such as tableware and things that missed the sailing. There are also audio accounts playing from some of those that were saved from the ship. You can also see a lot of Titanic memorabilia and facts at the Ulster Transport Museum at Cultra (not open on Mondays!).
