The exhibition is scheduled to reopen on Saturday, 4th of March, after a temporary closure.
The reimagined Titanic Experience introduces 'The Pursuit of Dreams' as a new theme and will use immersive technology combined with the authentic Titanic Story in our refreshed spaces which will be called Never Again; Ballard’s Quest; The Ship of Dreams and The Lasting Legacy.
The new model Titanic will be suspended from the ceiling and will fully rotate, taking approximately 90 seconds to complete.
It is replicated on a 1:35 scale and boasts some of the main features of the iconic ship including the lifeboats, propellers, engine, cranes, bridge, main staircase, and chimneys. The replica is fitted with 300 metres of LED lights that are programmed to highlight different areas of the ship in line with the stories being told.
Designed by OPERA Amsterdam, the replica ship is the largest model the company has ever created. It took six months to build.
Judith Owens MBE, chief executive of TBL International, the company behind the exhibition, said: “We are delighted to announce that Titanic Belfast is reopening its doors on Saturday 4th March with four exciting new themed spaces shedding new light on Titanic’s story.
She is known as The Ship of Dreams and bringing this fabulous replica Titanic model to life through light and giving visitors the chance to immerse themselves in the dreams and stories of the passengers will be very powerful.
Facts and details are fascinating but personal stories connect emotionally and by combining both, the reimagined Titanic Experience focusing on The Pursuit of Dreams will add a whole new dimension to the ship that has captivated people from around the world for 111 years.”
