Culture Vulture – Titanic: The Exhibition
Journey into the heart of the Titanic and experience the world’s largest and most comprehensive exhibition about this iconic ship. Immerse yourself in the moving tale of Titanic’s first and final voyage and experience the sights, sounds and stories as if you were on the ship.
Beginning with her conception and construction, the exhibition sails through Titanic’s short, but grand life at sea including over 300 artefacts dating back over 100 years and featuring recreations of her luxurious interiors, including the Grand Staircase and First Class Cabin. Sights, sounds and smells, as well as an actual iceberg encounter, transport visitors back to 1912 to experience the opulent and excessive era of luxury steamship travel. Memorabilia from James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster movie Titanic are also on display, including the famous “Heart of the Ocean” necklace.
Visitors to Titanic the Exhibition receive a boarding pass containing the personal information of an actual First, Second or Third Class Titanic passenger, offering a perspective on the passenger’s background and life onboard. The experience culminates in the Memorial Gallery, where visitors learn their chosen passenger’s fate on the cold early morning of April 15, 1912.
