REAL OBJECTS / REAL STORIES

TitanicTitanic

On April 15, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg claiming more than 1,500 lives and subsequently altering the world’s confidence in modern technology.  99 years later, the Natural Science Center will pay tribute to the tragedy which continues to resonate through Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, where more than 125 legendary artifacts conserved from the Ship’s debris field are showcased offering visitors a poignant look at this iconic Ship and its passengers 

The Exhibition has been designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic's compelling human stories as best told through authentic artifacts, photographs 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 small glass bottle owned by passenger Mary Ogden Meanwell -- these and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.

Upon entering the Exhibition, you will receive a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger aboard Titanic. Then you will begin their chronological journey through the life of the Titanic, moving through the Ship’s construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking and amazing artifact rescue efforts. You will marvel at the re-created cabins and shiver as you press your palms against the famous iceberg wall while learning of countless stories of heroism and humanity. At the end of your journey, you can take your boarding pass to the Memorial Wall and discover whether your passenger and traveling companions survived or perished.

Over the past 15 years, more than 22 million people have seen this powerful Exhibition in major museums worldwide - from Chicago to Los Angeles and Paris to London.  RMS Titanic, Inc. is the only company permitted by law to recover objects from the wreck of the Titanic. The Company was granted Salvor-in-Possession rights to the wreck site of Titanic by a United States federal court and has conducted eight research and recovery expeditions to the Titanic rescuing more than 5,500 artifacts.

After nearly a century since it sank, Titanic endures in the memories of Americans. And now Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition not only endures, but it continues to capture the imagination of visitors. We hope you get the opportunity to see and experience this amazing Exhibition at the Natural Science Center before it leaves on January 8, 2012!
