Titanic Belfast opens today - here's a preview of what to expect

The €120 million Titanic Belfast is due to open today, one hundred years to the day since the doomed ocean liner was completed. Here’s a video preview of what it’s like.

THE WORLD’S BIGGEST Titanic visitor attraction is set to open in Belfast later today, one hundred years to the day since the doomed ocean liner was completed in the same shipyard.

Titanic Belfast, the €120 million building which is hoped to provide a boost to Northern Ireland’s tourist economy, traces the entire Titanic story from how it was built in the Harland and Wolff ship yard to its eventual discovery on the seabed.

This video by Discover Ireland has a preview of what the giant visitor centre is like. Ignore the cheesy voiceover and check it out:
