This was a great museum to visit. There were loads of neat artifacts, tons of information and the personal touch of each visitor getting a real passenger on their "boarding pass." It was a coincidence that me and my boyfriend got husband and wife passengers! Even kids can enjoy this museum, as they have their own self guided tour as well. Highly recommend, especially this time of year while they are decorated for Christmas!
The staff dress up like the crew members and you receive a card naming a person on the actual ship. At the end of the self guided tour you find out if your person survived. You can't take pics on the first level of the tour but you can once you reach the staircase , which is absolutely beautiful. This year they were celebrating all of the children that were aboard so their names decorated the Christmas tree and decor. Everything was breathtaking and I would highly recommend visiting.
I've been to some of the traveling exhibitions, and they're always worth going to, but THIS one is the supreme! It was quite moving, very educational, and they seem to put a more personal touch on the experience, telling so many stories of the passengers and crew, you almost feel like you know them. It's kid-friendly, they even have interactive aspects and an audio tour just for them, and there's a whole area of fun learning tools and a HUGE Lego replica of the ship itself. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, and there are many opportunities to take photos throughout the exhibit. Ticket prices are cheaper than some other things you can do in the area, and it would make for a great hiding-from-the-rain spot!
We had a great experience with the Titanic Museum. I love how they hand you a card with a passenger that actually road on the Titanic. You travel through the floors with a phone recorder that can play certain areas marked with a number. The recorder plays the historical timeline and or interview of survivors or historians. In the end you can find your passengers name on a wall of survivors or those who perished. This was a remarkable way to remember this historic point in time. The facility was clean. The staff were helpful and polite. Very courteous staff.
The place was amazing. The flow was a bit bottleneck at times so maybe some arrows for better flow? This museum is for Titanic lovers not movie enthusiasts ( I'm both). If you've watched the movie you will recognize a lot, but if you like Titanic you will be enriched with history. The museum said 2-3 hours. I would more realistically closer to two that's even with reading and listening to a lot of stuff. You can't take pics on the first floor, but you can once you hit the top of the grand staircase. They did make this interactive for children, but I would say a no go for toddlers. Upon your entrance, you're given a card with info from a passenger and by the end you will find out if your person survived. You can feel how cold the water really was, which was crazy. It was an amazing place. A must see for sure
