Q: I remember reading one of your past columns where you discussed the Titanic exhibit. Are there any more?

A: In Halifax, you’ll find a fascinating display on the tragic sinking of the Titanic which can be viewed at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic (museum.gov.ns.ca.) However, Belfast has recently launched a new trail titled the Belfast Titanic Trail. This trail is completely digital and is considered the world’s first interactive multi-media digital tourism trail based around the city’s most famous export, The Titanic.

Visitors can take a virtual tour of the Titantic story using the latest GPS-based technology, the Node explorer. The new development takes visitors “back to the future,” and leads them on a tour of city sites associated with the Titanic story from the grounds of City Hall to Queen’s Island. This new Titanic trail also complements the new “Belfast Titanic Heritage Guide,” taking visitors on a journey through the history of shipbuilding in Belfast, and in particular a visit to Harland and Wolff, the firm that built the Titanic. The “Belfast Titanic Trail” Node explorer rentals are available at the Belfast Welcome Centre located in Donegall Place in the city centre.
