Titanic Museum

Location: Belfast, Ireland

This particular Titanic Museum is special for a couple of reasons. First, and perhaps most obviously, the museum opened 100 years after the demise of the ship, its crew members, and guests. The second is that the design for the Titanic was actually conceived in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the museum stands today. It includes galleries and reconstructions of the ship's interior, and its construction took three years total (coincidentally that the same number of years that it took for the Titanic to be manufactured). BBC hails the highlight of the museum the "10,000 piece replica" of the Titanic's Grand Staircase. Other replicas include cabins on board the ship, as well as a full-scale rudder of the ocean liner.
