Situated in the original White Star Line Office in Cobh, the success of Titanic Experience to date has been in the connection it gives visitors to the people on board Titanic. Thanks to the funding received from Fáilte Ireland under the ‘New ideas in Ancient Spaces’ grant support scheme, the completed works include new character projections, audio stations and AV presentations.
New for Summer 2016, visitors can immerse themselves in sights, sounds and even smells from the great liner! As Gillen Joyce explains “we have always tried to give an immersive experience here at Titanic Experience Cobh and with our new exhibits we take this further, bringing our key stories to life. You will now hear first-hand accounts of the sinking from Queenstown survivors, meet character portrayals, and experience the rescue of over 700 survivors on board Carpathia.”
