Titanic Belfast receives 2 million visits in less than 3 years
Titanic Belfast said goodbye to 2014 while welcoming its two-millionth visitor, less than three years after the museum opened its doors at Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, birthplace of the world’s most famous ship.
Michael Sweeney, 25-year-old accountant from north Belfast, and Tainá Myra de Castro, his Brazilian girlfriend, became the latest milestone guests and were greeted with a special reception headed by Belfast Lord Mayor, Nichola Mallon and Titanic Belfast’s CEO, Tim Husbands.
Having reached two million visitors, Titanic Belfast, nine-gallery exhibition about Titanic and Belfast’s maritime history, not only has established its position as the world’s largest Titanic-themed attraction but it has also once again exceeded visitor number expectations, hosting guests from almost 150 countries worldwide.
The museum has played a significant role in the transformation of Belfast and has become a ‘must-see’ for all types of visitor to Ireland, welcoming also VIP guests such as David Cameron, Julian Fellowes, Rod Steward, Hillary Clinton or TITANIC director James Cameron, who described the experience as “magnificent and dramatic”.
