Original building with character. Nice gift shop. Wheelchair and buggy friendly. A bit pricey but it's a quick tour of 30 minutes and more personal as the tour guide talks you through the experience. Children over 5 would enjoy this. younger children might find it boring or a bit daunting because it gets quite dark inside. My two year old wanted off the ship.. 🙈Being Irish we already know all about the titanic but went because our five year old is very interested in everything titanic.. sadly he couldn't understand that he wasn't able to see the original ship. 🤣 But he got enjoyment out of the artifacts and interactive tour. We coincided our tour with going to spike island. The museum is very close to the harbor so easy to pop from one to another. Well worth a visit I think.

Really interesting museum, we thought learning about specific passengers that boarded in Queenstown was a great way to go through the museum and made it more "real".

Joan was a brilliant tour guide and made the personal histories of people who left Cobh to board the Titanic really come to life. It was a very poignant experience to stand outside and look at the pier the passengers would have left from. The quality of the videos and exhibits was excellent. But Joan herself was what really mad it a special experience.

I thought this would be fun for our family, but we were blown away by the experience. Our young kids had been reading all about the Titanic before we went to the museum and absolutely loved it. After learning about what happened with the Titanic, the way the museum experience was done brought to life. At the beginning of the tour you are given a post card that gives information all about one of the real passengers on board the titanic. Then the museum is set up so that you experience first hand as a passenger would have. At the end you find out if your person made it to shore or if they were lost at sea. It was very informative and really did bring the experiences of the passengers to life. All of us enjoyed our time there.

Easy to book online and good value. Brilliant the way you get a ticket with a name of a passenger on it on the way in and find out their story as you leave. Tour guide, Joan, was friendly and gave an excellent tour with interesting side notes. Well worth a visit.

An excellent visit to the Titanic Experience. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable and easy to listen to. At the end of the tour was a very interesting exhibition. Unfortunately we didn't have time to stay longer but there was plenty to see and read. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

I did this activity with my three sons, ages 16, 9 and 9. When we got there we were each given a ticket with the name of someone who got on the Titanic in Queenstown and at the end we learned what happened to them. This idea really resonated with my little ones and they listened hard during our tour for the name of their passenger in the stories we were told. I had initially really hesitated to do this activity because guided tours are not our strong suit but I figured the nature of the information would be enough to keep people interested and I was totally right.

We moved from place to place quickly enough but still learned a lot. We got to learn about first and third class life, about those on board as well as that fateful night. At the end of the tour portion you could really imagine how frightening it would have been. It treats the lives of those lost with respect and gives you time to contemplate the tragedy without ever dragging. I’m glad I put this town and this museum on our list.

Also, kids LOVED the shop :)

My wife and I took the Titanic Experience Tour and we really enjoyed it. Vicky was our guide, and she was very professional and kept the tour moving along. When you enter, you are given a replica ticket from one of the actual passengers from the fateful voyage. During the tour, Vicky shared several stories about passengers and crew, but most of us had to wait until the very end to see the fate of our passenger ticket we received. It was clever to incorporate the tour participants into the story of the Titanic and really gave additional gravity to the tremendous loss of life and what a terrifying experience that must have been for the passengers and crew. The dramatizations of how the ship sank and why it happened, when it was deemed the unsinkable ship prior to this tragic evening.

Part of the tour is a fun activity where you are given a passenger ticket, to enter the tour, from one of the actual passengers! Vicky shared several stories about many passengers and crew, but most of us had to wait until the end of the tour to discover the fate of our ticket's passenger. That was fun and eerie at the same time. Incredible history of a tragic event, but one everyone should visit. Excellent experience and tour.
