Our guides customise the content and delivery of the guided tour to the age profile of the class, making it suitable for all age groups.
THE TITANIC EXPERIENCE
Check in to the original White Star Line Ticket Office, and receive a boarding card. Your boarding card will have the details of one of the 123 passengers who boarded the Titanic on Thursday, April 11th 1912.
Our tour guides will take you on a virtual journey to board the tenders and join the Titanic for her maiden voyage to New York. You will view the original pier (Heartbreak Pier), the last point of land contact for the Queenstown passengers. We will immerse you in life on board Titanic and tell you a little about the conditions on board for third and first-class passengers. When disaster strikes, you will experience the chill of the sinking in a unique cinematographic experience.
Following the guided element of the tour, you will visit our exhibition area dedicated to the individual triumphs and tragedies of passengers; you will discover the smells, the sounds, the sights and the stories of the ship.
The final element of our experience is the story room, where you will learn the fate of your passenger and all the Queenstown passengers. We also feature a selection of interesting artefacts from Carpathia, The Odell Family Collection and some original serving pieces from the White Star Line fleet of the early 20th century.

WHAT OUR HAPPY VISITORS SAY
I bring my class each year to the Titanic Experience as part of our study on the Titanic. The children really enjoy the trip, as a lot of what they have studied and researched in class and at home is brought to life. The staff are very helpful and accommodating and most importantly Knowledgeable. We even dress up to mark the occasion! I like the new additions to the exhibit, the children found the added smells and sounds rather interesting. Would highly recommend it to any schools thinking of looking for somewhere to visit.
