Titanic Experience Refreshment

The Titanic Experience Reimagined

Where once the world’s biggest shipyard built one of the world’s greatest ships, now stands Titanic Belfast. As guardians of the Titanic story, it is our duty to be a world-class narrator telling her tale in an innovative, engaging, respectful and authentic way.

Since opening ten years ago we have firmly established ourselves on the local, national and international stage and have played a key role in the resurgence of tourism for Northern Ireland, welcoming over 7 million visitors and generating an additional £430m for the local economy.

Dreaming big is in our DNA and just like the designers who created Titanic, we continually innovate how we tell her story, finding new ways to capture the imagination. In our most ambitious project and single largest investment to date, we are embarking on a multi-million-pound refreshment.


Refreshment Works Closure

To enable us to continue to push boundaries with immersive technology, original maritime heritage and the authentic Titanic story, to deliver an enriched, emotive visitor experience, we will be closing the Titanic Belfast building from 2nd January – 3rd March inclusive to allow major works to take place to the Titanic Experience.

Throughout the closure period, visitors will still be able to enjoy the Titanic story with two daily outdoor only guided Discovery Tours running, showcasing the iconic building and historic slipways. While a new standalone ticket for SS Nomadic has also been launched for visitors step on board the last remaining White Star Line ship in the world.
