The Titanic has become a myth and an example of humanity’s ambition. The ship was the largest movable structure ever made by humans. The most famous ship in history is about to celebrate the first hundred years after its maiden voyage and sinking.
Belfast museum aspire to have the effect that the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao had. We know much about the end of the Titanic, but little about how it started. Belfast, the city where the Titanic was built, is on charge now of showing visitors all the details. For this, the capital of Northern Ireland has just launched the ‘Belfast Titanic’.
This is the largest interactive world center about Titanic that will show the secrets and curiosities of the most famous ship in history a hundred years after.
The exhibition will take place in a six-story building located in the district ‘Titanic Quarter’ and which façade has the form of four bows with the same height as the famous ship, from keel to deck, and inside is relived the story of the legendary ocean liner, in its day the largest moving object in the world.
‘Titanic Belfast ‘ is a journey from the conception of the ship when it was a vision laid out on paper and designed to become the most luxurious ship ever seen so far.
The building has nine interactive galleries with images, information, videos and reconstructions of the Titanic.
