Like many people, I am fascinated by the story of the Titanic, so when a museum dedicated to the ship’s story opened in Belfast in March 2012, a visit immediately became a priority.

Belfast is where the great liner was built by the firm Harland and Wolff, and Titanic Belfast, as it is known, sits right by the slipway where the vessel was launched in 1911. The eight-story building itself is extraordinary, with angled walls clad in anodized aluminum that recall the prows of great ships. (Some local people, however, insist that the structure looks more like an iceberg.)
