Titanic Museum, Belfast, Northern Ireland

Titanic Museum, Belfast, Nordirland

The Titanic Museum in Belfast was designed by the architect Eric Kuhne and Associates. It was built for the Titanic Museum which offers a permanent exhibition about Belfast, its history, the dockyards, and the rise and fall of the world's biggest passenger ship at its time. The 100 Mill. Euro museum was constructed at the place of the former dockyards, where Titanic was built. The museum opened in 2012, exactly 100 years after the most famous ship disaster in history in 1912. The form of the building reminds of a ship hull.
