It’s one the most popular travelling exhibitions in the world with hundreds of original artifacts brought back from nearly 4 km depth.
- If you are fan of the James Cameron movie or interested in the history of the famous luxury ship then you definitely must see the exhibit. You can easily get to the location from everywhere in Budapest.
- A truly atmospheric exhibition with sounds and lighting effects and masterfully arranged objects, reconstructed cabins, dining rooms.
- An awesome program for a rainy day or when it’s too hot or too cold for outdoor activities.
- It’s an fun educational activity for kids, recommended from ages 6 in my opinion. I took our two boys (aged 6 and 13) and they enjoyed it, especially with the audio guide in their hands. TIP: Takes at least 1,5 – 2 hrs from “boarding the ship till getting off” so younger kids might loose interest and get tired after a time.
Although the number of visitors let in is limited, to avoid crowd, time your visit on a weekday morning. Evening hours and weekends tends to be more popular.
It takes about 2 hours to to properly view everything, so take your time and enjoy the journey back in time.
After paying four our tickets we received our boarding passes on which names of the real travellers were written.
The first part of the exhibit provides historical background on the era – the arly 1900s – the Titanic was built and started its first and last voyage (1912).
The information and facts might seem too much at first glance but thely really lend context to the whole exhibit and the story of the ship.
Lots of objects brought up from nearly 4000 m depth (fixtures from the engine room and a wall sconce from the 1st class).
Király utca is long street stretching from Deák Square till Lövölde tér in district VI.
The Synagogue in Dohány Street, one of the most beautiful synagogue in the world, is just an 8-minute walk from the Titanic Exhibition venue.
The neighbouring streets are the heart of historic Jewish Budapest with more synagogues and a range of cultural attractions.
Drop by a ruin pub in Kazinczy utca to see what’s all the hype about them. The most famous ruin bar is Szimpla that is also home to a farmers’ market on Sundays.
