Titanic Artifact Exhibition
Anyone with a curiosity about the Titanic can easily find pictures of the ship, passengers, and wreckage online. Seeing the artifacts in person is an entirely different experience. The Titanic Artifact Exhibition is where you can immerse yourself in the Titanic storyline and experience the history in an up-close and personal way.
The Titanic was once compared to a floating palace and unlike anything seen before in its time. An air of wonder and awe surrounded it for its magnificence and opulence. Before its maiden voyage, the ship was described as being built to be practically unsinkable, but a fateful night in 1912 proved otherwise. Today, we can get a glimpse of this magnificent piece of history at Titanic The Artifact Exhibition.
The Titanic Artifact Exhibition is 25,000 square feet of museum space devoted entirely to the famed luxury ocean liner. A collection of more than 250 artifacts tell an intimate and haunting story of the Titanic and the events that happened during its short maiden voyage more than a century ago. The Exhibition is one of the largest collections of Titanic artifacts in the world.
The Artifact Exhibition Highlights
The Exhibition showcases historical artifacts that have been recovered from deep beneath the North Atlantic wreck site’s surface water. Artifacts on display include passenger luggage, dinnerware, an unopened champagne bottle, and floor tiles from the smoking-room, among others that tell the tale of romance and affluence that surrounds the Titanic.
Actual pieces of the ship have also been recovered and are on display at the Titanic Artifact Exhibition. On display is a piece of the ship’s hull, the ship’s whistles, and a window frame from Verandah Cafe. You’ll also find full-scale recreations of the Promenade Deck, with a frigid atmosphere that mimics what the passengers felt on the tragic night. A recreation of the Grand Staircase and other significant features give a new perspective of what it would have been like to be aboard the Titanic.
