Nearly 100 years after the RMS Titanic left Belfast in Northern Ireland on its cross-Atlantic journey, the story of one of the most dramatic maritime disasters in history is being retold with the help of an impressive six-floor museum constructed in the city.
Opening on 31 March, 2012, the Belfast Titanic is slated to be one of the world's biggest Titanic visitor attractions that will narrate the story of the "Unsinkable" Titanic right from the ship's construction in Belfast to her sinking in the Atlantic on her maiden voyage one hundred years ago.
Thought to be unsinkable, the RMS Titanic was the largest and most luxurious passenger vessel of its time. It was the sheer size and technological advancements present on the Titanic that made the passengers and crew believe the ship was unsinkable.
However, the Titanic met its fate after striking an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean.
Now, 100 years later, the city of Belfast has spent nearly £100 million to construct the new museum in order to capitalise on global interest in the Titanic.
Extending over nine galleries, with multiple dimensions to the exhibition, the new construction will reportedly explore the Titanic story in a fresh and insightful way. The visitor will be taken through the Titanic's conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, her construction and launch, and her infamous maiden voyage and catastrophic demise.
The journey will reportedly go beyond the aftermath of sinking to the present day discovery of the wrecks and undersea exploration.
