People with an interest in the story of the Titanic can pay a visit to Belfast this year to see a new exhibition.

TITANICa: The Exhibition is currently showing at the Ulster Transport Museum, which is located seven miles east of Belfast city centre.

The display focuses on the reasons why the Titanic and similar ships were built in Belfast and how local skills and enterprise were combined to produce the liners.

It also provides an insight into life onboard the ill-fated vessel, using artefacts and personal stories to illustrate the well-known story.

After exploring the show, visitors can head to the outdoor Ulster Folk Museum to TITANICa: The People's Story, which concentrates on the daily routines and lives or ordinary people in 1912.

A shipyard worker's home, a carpenter's workshop and a period post office are among the exhibits to look out for.

Belfast is home to many other attractions exploring local history and culture, such as Ulster Museum and the Belfast Exposed photography gallery.
