One of Europe’s largest privately owned collections of robots, cyborgs and androids have recently arrived at Titanic Belfast for its Robots Summer exhibition, which will run up to September 13, 2015. The collection of movie props and costumes, including Iron Man, R2-D2 and T-800 from Terminator, which are on loan from the Museum of Movie Magic, Scotland, have taken center stage at Titanic Belfast’s Robots exhibition. Thousands of visitors are expected to travel from far and wide to enjoy the eclectic collection from props used on-screen to personal robots, toys and sculptures.
With over 50 robots on display, the exhibition has something for children and adults alike. Film fans won’t be disappointed with Sonny from I, Robot, the B9 robot from Lost in Space and the cyborg RoboCop on the bill. Enduring family favourites such as the stars from Star Trek, Red Dwarf and Robby the Robot from Forbidden Plant are also on display. For those who prefer ‘the dark side’, robots like ABC robot from Judge Dredd and a Sontaran from Doctor Who are awaiting Northern Ireland visitors at the largest Robot exhibition in Northern Ireland.
Don Jack, curator of the Robots exhibition said, “We are delighted to bring Robots to Titanic Belfast. People find our collections totally fascinating. Folks, just love to see the items, particularly the iconic pieces. I can’t imagine a more spectacular setting for the blockbuster Robots than Titanic Belfast.”
Tim Husbands, MBE, commented, “Titanic Belfast has pulled out all the stops to transform the Andrews Gallery into a world of Robots making it the must-see exhibition this summer. We are looking forward to welcoming visitors of all ages from across Northern Ireland and beyond.”
