Titanic Experience Cobh is a new permanent visitor centre, located in the original White Star Line Ticket Office in the centre of Cobh town (formally known as Queenstown) in what was the departure point for the final 123 passengers who boarded the Titanic.
Our visitor experience is presented in two parts. The first is an exciting immersive audio visual tour retracing the steps of the 123 passengers who boarded Titanic from Queenstown on April 11th 1912. With Officer Boxall as your virtual guide, innovative audio visual technology and our replica interior ship set, experience the anticipation of the long journey ahead and the new life waiting for our Queenstown passengers in America. Share the excitement of boarding the most Luxurious liner of her time and feel the horror of the tragedy on that fateful night.
The second part of Titanic Experience examines how it all went wrong; the unbelievable and “almost” impossible sequence of events that occurred to cause Titanic to sink. Computer generated graphics recreating the collision and subsequent sinking, film analysis of the Titanic on the sea bed and expert interviews these interactive exhibits allow visitors to find out how and why the Titanic sank on that fateful night of the 15th April 1912.
Finally our Story Room of Touchscreen Computers allows one to look at the personalities on board the ship and in particular to discover the fate of our 123 Queenstown passengers.
