The history of the transatlantic liner is known to all. Built in the shipyards of Belfast in 1912, this four-tube handsome steamer was the largest ship of its time. He was the most modern steamer in the world. Tickets for his first flight were sold out in advance. He was considered unsinkable. And he sank, faced with an iceberg on his first flight. Such is the irony … It is Titanic and dedicated to one of the most interesting museums Branson.
Created by John Joslin, who led the 1987 expedition to study the wreckage of the Titanic, this museum is an exact replica of the bow of the liner. Inside, this amazing museum reproduces the atmosphere of the steamer during its first and at the same time the last voyage across the Atlantic Ocean.
