The visitor experience is presented in two parts. The first is an immersive audio visual tour retracing the steps of the 123 passengers who boarded Titanic from Queenstown on April 11th 1912. Experience their anticipation of the long journey ahead and their new life waiting in America. With Fourth Officer Boxall as your virtual guide and using innovative audio visual technology and replica set designs, ‘passengers’ will experience what life would have been like on board for those 123 Queenstown Passengers. Share the excitement of boarding the most luxurious liner of her time and feel the horror of the tragedy on that fateful night on the 15th April 1912.
The second part of the Titanic Experience examines how it all went wrong. The unbelievable and “almost” impossible sequence of events that occurred to cause Titanic to sink. Using computer generated graphics to recreate the collision and subsequent sinking, film analysis of the Titanic on the seabed and expert interviews these interactive exhibits allow you to find out how and why the Titanic sank on that fateful night. Touchscreen Computers allow you to look at the personalities on board the ship and in particular to discover the fate of our 123 Queenstown passengers.
