What people are saying about Titanic Belfast
The Titanic Odyssey building itself is beautiful, almost a work of art. There is a great deal of information about the development of Belfast into the ship-building center it became, a lead-up to how the Titanic and other large ships were constructed. There are pictures of some of the people who were on the ship, including their survival (or not) status, a wonderful panoramic section which takes you visually from the lowest to the highest levels of the ship, even a ride that does this (but we didn't do it because the line for the ride was 40 minutes long). Similar artifacts to those on the ship are displayed. There's a gift shop, a nice restaurant, and a bistro, and the food was good. As part of our ticket we were also able to visit the small ship Nomadic, which took first- and second-class passengers out to where the Titanic was moored--even this small journey had its differences between first and second class, including strict segregation of the classes. I would recommend this tour!
British power was built on the blood and sweats of small and small children. Their little hands fit everywhere and they did everything under the pressure of the overseers. Initially, in hot hall boys and girls worked without the upper part of clothing, the news about the children came to the Bakingham Palace. Later no longer accepted girls to work and working girls were fired from work. For children employed in chimney plants, nails were nailed to small feet so that they would not slip off the slippery chimney corridors during their soot cleaning. At that time, the church knew about the children who were being used, but he did not react because he received donations from the capitalist exploiters of children. Currently, children in South and Central America, Africa, Asia are used in the same way. They work above their strengths mainly in the sewing and food industry. Drinkings coffee or branded clothing made hands children, they do not show that there are drops of blood and sweats.
No stone left unturned. The personal stories of those who survived and those who didn’t was very touching. The attention to detail as regards the sheer scale and magnitude of the workmanship and materials used to build the Titanic was fascinating and illustrated quite intensely which showed a great depiction and insight into life in Belfast for many at that time. Arguably the best exhibition on the island of Ireland.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience exploring the life and times of those involved in the building of the vessel as well as those crew and the passengers in a well laid out interactive environment. An extra treat was to get aboard the SS Nomadic and get the look and feel of the vessel that took passengers out to the great ship.
So much to learn about what the Titanic was really like and not the glammed up account in the film. Highly recommended. The guides are extremely knowledgeable too and all are Belfast born and bred with excellent local knowledge too.
