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, even a pair of men’s dress shoes—these
and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional
connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.
Visitors are drawn back in time to 1912 upon entrance, as each
receives a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger on board
Titanic. They then begin their chronological journey
through the life of Titanic, moving through the Ship’s
construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking and
amazing artifact rescue efforts. At the end of the tour, they
discover whether their specific passenger survived.
They will marvel at the re-created First Class and Third Class
accommodations, and press their palms against an iceberg while
learning of countless stories of heroism and humanity. In the
“Memorial Gallery” guests will take their boarding pass to the
memorial wall and discover whether their passenger and traveling
companions survived or perished. Titanic: The Artifact
Exhibition is sponsored by BP.
