Moored in Alexandra Dock in Belfast’s famous Titanic Quarter, HMS Caroline is the last known surviving warship from one of the largest and most important naval battles, the Battle of Jutland in 1916.
The ship, which was transformed into an interactive museum in 2016, recently reopened to visitors after being closed for three years due to the Covid pandemic.
HMS Caroline offers a unique opportunity to experience what life was like aboard a warship 100 years ago.
Visitors can view the beautifully restored living quarters, the signal school, engine room, sick bay and galley. Interactive displays offer the opportunity to learn to crack codes, launch torpedoes and take virtual control of the ship.
Delivering a totally immersive experience, large multi-screen videos reproduce the sounds and drama of the battle against the mighty German Imperial Fleet.
During the closure, all the artefacts on display in the ship had to be dismantled and removed for safekeeping. They have now been put back on display together with new items from the archives such as the christening bell.
