The Titanic, which sank on 15th April 1912, was built by the Belfast industrial company, Harland and Wolff. On board of the Titanic were many Irish, too – especially in third class and most of the crew. Today, Belfast is home to one of two popular museums in Ireland that are devoted to the “unsinkable” ship and its history.
Titanic Belfast is located beside the Titanic Slipways where the newly-built Titanic first came into contact with water, and the Harland and Wolff Drawing Offices, and the Hamilton Graving Dock where the Titanic was designed and built.
