Titanic: The Exhibition is an immersive experience and far more than just a display of historical items.
Through photographs, handwritten letters, keepsakes and personal bits and pieces, Titanic: The Exhibition retells the human side to the story of the ship’s sinking – the lives, fates and heroic deeds of those onboard.
All up, there’s more than 200 previously unseen and original objects, as well as testimonies from passengers.
The ship’s interior has been recreated to scale, so visitors can compare first-class suites to third-class cabins too, and audio guides featuring music and sound effects details the ship’s history.
To get the most out of the exhibition, allow 80-90 minutes for your visit, and tickets are now on sale.
The exhibition is produced by Spanish company Musealia, and features contributions by historians as well as the Titanic expert and author Claes-Göran Wetterholm.
The Titanic was set to be one of the three largest, grandest ships around, along with the Olympic and the Britannic. The ship’s interiors competed with the best hotels and restaurants’ and were fitted with state-of-the-art watertight door systems, meaning the Titanic was supposed to be unsinkable.
However, we all know that wasn’t the case and when it collided with an iceberg on April 14, 1912 in the icy waters of the North Atlantic, 1,496 people lost their lives.
