On the 100th anniversary of the sinking, the Titanic exhibit showcases 300 artifacts that have been recovered during numerous diving expeditions to the ship, which still lies on the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean.
The ship's construction, passenger biographies, arrangement of the artifacts and ship information is very well organized! The difference in first, second and third class is interesting. Several short video clips show the ship on the ocean's floor. A touchable iceberg allows you to feel the water's temperature on that fatal day. We did not use the audio headsets, but read the wall posters arranged throughout the exhibit.
Entry to the exhibit is timed to avoid overcrowding. Tickets include all day entry to the Museum and a timed entry ticket to the Titanic exhibit. I suggest purchasing tickets ahead of time and plan your Titanic visit early or late in the day. Allow at least 90 minutes to adequately view the exhibit. Also, if you're interested in either Imax movie, check movie times versus viewing the exhibit.
Two Titanic movies are showing at the Imax - James Cameron's 1997 Titanic in 3D and Titanica, a docudrama which includes ship construction, sea trials and images of the ship during diving exhibitions. Movie tickets are an extra charge from museum/exhibit entry fee.
The Museum is also featuring Titanic Tuesdays - a speakers and authors lecture series - check the website for further information.
This is an exhibition you don't want to miss!
