The Unsinkable Titanic Museum
This month, make it a memorable Saint Patrick’s Day with a visit to a legendary lady of the sea during Irish Month at the Titanic Museum. Honor the Irish heritage of the Titanic (built by laborers in Belfast) and the 159 Irish passengers and crew on board. The entire family will have a blast with the “Titanic experience,” where you can plunge a hand into 28-degree water, send an S.O.S., touch a real iceberg, stand on the stern’s tilting decks, and listen to the poignant tales of passengers from your seat in a lifeboat.
You’ll see hundreds of personal artifacts, including the recent unveiling of a silver brandy flask and a beloved family heirloom that belonged to a first-class passenger. Note: these two items will remain at the Titanic Museum only until April 10. And, don’t miss “A Night at the Titanic Museum Flashlight Tour” on the inaugural nights of March 16 and March 23, when a Titanic crew member will supply you with a flashlight and lead you along the way. Don’t worry if you can’t make this tour in March, it will still be available on selected nights throughout the year.
