Belfast Before Flood

room 11 ECHOES


Here in the year 2222, we often wonder what Belfast was like 200 years ago.

Come and see for yourself in ‘Belfast Before Flood’ - the new living museum based on the forgotten Belfast of 2022.

Using authentic early 21st Century technology and language, this experience is guaranteed to be both educational and entertaining for anyone interested in what life was like before the Great Submersion.

Using the quaint antique of technology of mobile smartphones, ‘Belfast Before Flood’ provides a location-activated audio walk that shares the stories of how and why Belfast was the way it was in 2022. And more importantly, how it changed in the intervening years leading to our present day in the year 2222.

So celebrate 200 years since the era of peak knowledge and the beginning of the end of life as they knew it in 'Belfast Before Flood'.

To begin, tap 'Stream Walk'. Once you see the map, pay attention to your location via the bright blue dot - if you can't see it on the map, tap 'Locate Me' or the small arrow button.

You can then find the audio tour locations at the 'sound zones' - the pale blue shapes on the map. The circular shape marks the first sound zone.

You can get a hint of the content for a sound zone by tapping its marker on the map.

Once you enter a sound zone the audio tour commentary will start, and play through while you remain in the zone.

Remember to be aware of your surroundings and passing traffic.

Please listen through headphones and turn on your phone's WiFi to help improve your location accuracy.

Tap the download button on the walk-in advance to prevent issues with mobile data streaming.
