The Titanic Belfast Experience is a new visitor attraction location in Belfast's Titanic Quarter, on the original site of the Harland and Wolff shipyard -  birthplace of RMS Titanic.

 In Belfast, Northern Ireland, two new buildings have recently opened that they hope will draw tourists. The latest one is the Metropolitan Arts Centre (MAC) which houses this exhibit, Table and Four Chairs by Chicago-born artist Robert Therrien. The artist is known for his monumental sculptures which transform everyday objects into something more. This dining room set is nearly ten feet high and makes me think of Alice in Wonderland.

A few weeks ago the Belfast Titanic opened nearby. You can see more photos in our slideshow at left.
