Each visitor gets the opportunity to travel as one of the 123 passengers who boarded the ill-fated liner from here in 1912. Follow in their footsteps and learn more about the local connection to the legendary Titanic.
Upon check-in you will receive your boarding card. Your boarding card will have the details of one of the 123 passengers who came to the White Star Line Ticket Office on Thursday April 11th 1912. These were the final passengers to join Titanic at her last port of call in Queenstown, Ireland. (Cobh was renamed Queenstown from the period of 1849-1921 in honour of Queen Victoria’s visit to Cobh).
Your personal tour guide will take you on a virtual journey to join Titanic for her maiden voyage to New York. Along this journey you will view the original pier also known as Heartbreak Pier. You will experience life aboard Titanic and learn a little about the conditions on board for third and first class passengers. When disaster strikes, you will experience the chill of the sinking, through a unique cinematographic experience.
The exhibition area allows you to interact with a collection of audio visual presentations and story boards exploring the events that led to the tragic sinking. You will also learn about the role of RMS Carpathia in the rescue of the survivors. Did you survive? The final element of the experience is located in the story room, where you will learn the fate of you as a passenger and all the other Queenstown passengers.
