Massive Titanic 'experience' opens in Belfast

The Titanic Belfast, the world’s largest Titanic-themed museum, officially opened on 31 March 2012 - the centenary of the ship’s voyage

The attraction was designed by Civic Arts/Eric R Kuhne Architects, who worked with lead consultant Todd Architects to deliver the project.

The six-storey building comprises nine gallery spaces, a banqueting suite and community arts and educational facilities.

The design includes many references to the famous ship. The walls of the building are clad in metal panels similar in size and shape to those used on the Titanic, while the 1,000 seat banqueting suite has a 10,000 piece replica of the Titanic’s Grand Staircase.

The museum is part of the £7billion Titanic Quarter development, a regeneration scheme for the River Lagan waterfront area.
