The transport section houses an extensive collection of horse-drawn carriages, electric trams, motorbikes, fire engines, and vintage cars, telling the story of transportation in Ireland. The Irish Railway Collection features 150 years of railway history. The museum houses a permanent Titanic exhibition documenting the construction, voyage, and sinking of the vessel.
