Remembering the Titanic: An Afternoon at its Belfast Memorial

Karla Ramos explores the Belfast museum dedicated to the memory of the great ship.

The Titanic Museum in Belfast had something none of the many other Titanic museums around the world has — the actual docks where the gargantuan ship was built.


To the Northern Irish of the time, building ships were their bread and butter. This was explored at the start of the museum tour. Titanic (and her twin sister Olympic) were the crowning jewels of their trade. As many as 10,000 men worked on building the Titanic, and special docks had to be built to accommodate the sheer size!

I loved how tourists were able to walk on the very spot where the ship once sat before she set off to history.

The Titanic is more glorious (and tragic) in person.
