Overview
More
Titanic's Dock and Pump-House is the world's only authentic Titanic landmark. It is the last place Titanic rested on dry ground, and is her physical footprint in history. Visitors can experience life in 1912 by descending 44 feet into the colossal dry dock and walk in the footsteps of the men who worked in the shipyard a century ago. Experience the engineering behind the legendary pump-house, which still houses the original pumping engines, situated deep in the pump-well. The Pump-House also includes a visitor center and cafe, where you can relax and enjoy hot and cold snacks, refreshments, free wi-fi, or even pick up a souvenir or two from our Titanic gift shop. An inspiring and thought-provoking experience awaits you!

A damp January morning, and I was determined, despite my arthritic old ankles, to get a look at the Titanic’s dry dock, and hopefully climb down into it. IT WAS SO WORTH THE EFFORT! What an amazing piece of history! Mercifully, it’s not ‘interactive’ and,...More

I felt honoured and humbled to be able to walk right through the Titanic Dock and look around the exhibits alongside it. I am very concerned, however, that this fabulous exhibit is so low key. When the Belfast City Sightseeing stops at the HMS Caroline...More

This is a hidden gem! It's a bit of a walk (10 min.) from the Titanic Belfast Museum but it is more than worth it. Words or pictures just can't describe the magnitude of this place or the history. Adults and children alike will find...More

This is a good 10 min walk from Tatanic experience, and not worth the small £3 entrance fee. Not much to see, but it does give an idea of what it must have been like working in a dry dock.

This attraction seems to be forgotten in all the guidebooks and as a result is confusing to find. However, I would totally recommend it - especially if you're not a museum person -because it brings the history to life. The main experience here is to...More

Not a great deal to see in detail BUT the dock gives an amazing insight into the colossal size of the Titanic and therefore a unique insight into this tragic piece of history

The main Titanic museum is so much better. This place is nothing more than a few empty aging pumps in a room. Followed by "use your imagination" visual cracking signboards at the dock. Which is nothing more than a huge concern dock full of moss...More

Are you talking about the dock and pumphouse or the Titanic exhibit itself? This is a separate tour it looks at the original building docks and is on a mini train. It certainly doesn't take 5 hours to do but should be done... More
