Titanic Belfast Entrance Ticket: Titanic Visitor Experience Including SS Nomadic
Really enjoyed the whole tour. Just one observation - the lighting in some of the areas was poor making if difficult to read some of the history.

Titanic Belfast Entrance Ticket: Titanic Visitor Experience Including SS Nomadic
An excellent Titanic experience. Also great information about the early industrial history of Belfast. The virtual tour around the Titanic interior and the little "ride" featuring shipbuilding workings were really, really good. Loved the tour around the Titanic's transfer/sister boat the SS Nomadic and to see its wonderful restoration works. Absolutely worth a visit.

I brought my 2 children 9 and 7. We had a great time. They have done everything so well including covid precautions. Although not everyone using their head re social distancing so sometimes up to you to stand back and wait but that is not their fault. Very good value and well worth it. I would do it again .

History of the SS Nomadic

The SSNomadic stayed afloat for decades after the sinking of theTitanic. The ship continued to work as a tender for White Star’s luxury cruisers, and was used in both world wars before finally ending up as a floating party boat on the River Seine in Paris. Having been purchased by the Northern Irish government in 2002, the SSNomadic was restored and retired to the dry dock in Belfast where it now stands.
