Titanic exhibitions bring past to life

LOCATED 15 minutes from Belfast city centre, the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum is running two exhibitions to commemorate the centenary of the launch of the Titanic.

At the Folk Museum’s ‘The People’s Story’ exhibition, groups can wander mock-ups of historic streets mingling with actors in period dress.

TITANICa: The Exhibition, which will run indefinitely at the Transport Museum, features more than 500 original artefacts, including a 20-foot long plan capturing last minute design changes to the ship and never-beforeseen objects from the Titanic wreck site, such as part of the hull, a porthole, silverware, glassware and some of the passengers’ personal belongings.
Meanwhile, the outdoor Folk Museum is staging ‘The People’s Story’ until at least December 2012.
The exhibition, which features costumed interpreters, allows groups to walk mock-ups of historic streets and meet the people who built the ship and lived in her time.
Both exhibitions are included in the general entry price for the museum, which offers discounts for groups.
