Titanic Experience Cobh- Titanic Exhibitions Ireland
Titanic Experience Cobh
is a new permanent visitor experience due to open in January 2012 in Cobh, County Cork.
The exhibition will be housed in the original White Star Line building in Cobh, the site where the last 123 passengers boarded the Titanic. The building delivers the poignancy of the story being told and as the last port of call for the ill-fated great ship, Cobh is a natural home for the Titanic Experience.
The aim of this exhibition is to bring to life the experience on board, sharing the highs and lows of an early 20th century luxury cruise liner through clever set designs, audio visual aids and interactive exhibits. This will include cinematic shows, holographic imagery and touch screen technology.
Importantly, this is the sole exhibition with a focus on the passengers who boarded at Cobh (then known as Queenstown), highlighting the intimate Irish connection to this legendary story.
The Titanic Experience has secured the original offices of the White Star Line, the point of departure for the last 123 passengers to board Titanic. Still in existence at the rear of the building are the remains of the pier along which the passengers would have walked to board the tenders which took them to Titanic.
