On April 15, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg claiming more than 1,500 lives and subsequently altering the world’s confidence in modern technology. In Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, more than 150 legendary artifacts conserved from the Ship’s debris field are showcased offering a poignant look at this iconic Ship and its passengers.
The Exhibition has been designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic’s compelling human stories as best told through 150 authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. Perfume from a maker who was traveling to New York to sell his samples, china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line -- these and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.
Go back in time to 1912 upon entrance, as you receive a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger aboard Titanic. Begin a chronological journey through the life of the Titanic, moving through the ship’s construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking and amazing artifact rescue efforts. Marvel at the re-created First Class and Third Class accommodations, and press your palms against an iceberg while learning of countless stories of heroism and humanity. In the “Memorial Gallery” take your boarding pass to the memorial wall and discover whether your passenger and traveling companions survived or perished.
