Head inside Titanic Belfast with your entrance ticket and explore the exciting attraction at your own pace, browsing the extensive exhibitions that comprise the Titanic Visitor Experience. The impressive structure stands on the very ground where the famous Titanic ship was built over a century ago.

Walk through the Titanic Belfast's giant atrium and gaze around at the four hull-shaped wings that house the Titanic Visitor Experience. Head inside the exhibition and explore nine large galleries with state-of-the-art interactive discovery zones that tell the fateful story of the Titanic, from her launch, maiden voyage and subsequent place in history.

Besides gleaming details about the fascinating ship, learn how Belfast was a boomtown at the turn of the century. See exhibits about Harland and Wolff, the shipping supremos who built the Titanic along with other great vessels of her time.

Walk through a reconstruction of the original shipyard and slipways, and have a go on the impressive Shipyard Ride -- an attraction that uses special effects and animations to recreate shipbuilding in the early 1900s.

At the end of the Titanic Visitor Experience is the Ocean Exploration Centre, another fascinating interactive exhibition that focuses on oceanography and marine research. Browse the audiovisual presentations and learn how oceans and seabeds behave.

How long you spend inside Titanic Belfast is up to you -- many visitors find two hours sufficient to see all the exhibitions. If you are hungry or want a drink, head to the on-site Bistro 41 or Gallery Café. Food and drinks are payable at your own expense.

Brooklyn Navy Yard Tour

day 7 - Brooklyn Navy Yard Tour
Meet at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center and hop on a bus to begin your tour of this massive 300-acre (121-hectare) historical site. You and your knowledgeable guide will stop and explore several locations by foot for a closer look at New York’s interesting naval history.

Visit some of the yard’s most intriguing places, like the 19th-century navy hospital and surgeon's house and the oldest dry dock in the US, which is still used for ship repair today.

For more than 150 years, this yard created America's most famous fighting ships, from the USS Maine to the USS Missouri. Hear how it has transformed from one of the nation's top naval shipbuilding facilities into a national leader for sustainable urban industrial parks. It now houses the nation's first multi-story ‘green’ industrial building, featuring wind turbines and wind- and solar-powered street lamps.

To enhance your experience, see historical photographs and listen to audio clips of WW2-era workers, manufacturers and farmers.

You’ll also learn how today the manufacturing facilities are used by hundreds of companies and generate a wide range of products ranging from modular housing units to military body armor, Sweet n' Low, whiskey and movie set designs!
