Titanic Experience Cobh is located in Casement Square in the heart of Cobh Town. The Titanic visitor centre is home to the original White Star Line Ticket Office, a building steeped in history dating back to the early 19th century and the departure point for many thousands of White Star Line passengers.
The 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 the replica interior ship set, experience the anticipation of the long journey ahead and the new life waiting for Queenstown’s 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. With 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.
