The Titanic

RMS Titanic

Built by Harland and Wolff in Belfast Ireland for the White Star shipping company, the RMS Titanic is possibly one of the most known ships to have ever sailed. And tragically, the sinking on April 14, 1912 is what the fated ship is most known for. After striking an iceberg, the RMS Titanic took on water, rose violently upwards, broke apart and plummetted to the ocean floor claiming some 1,500 lives.

RMS Titanic

Resting on the ocean floor for over seventy years, the ship was found by Dr. Robert D. Ballard in 1985. Dr. Ballard located the wreckage using a novel technique that identified the debris field that scattered away from the ship and used this cookie crumb-like trail to eventually locate the Titanic.

The Exhibit

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition features more than 150 authentic artifacts recovered from the ocean floor along with room re-creations and personal stories. Visitors will receive a replica boarding pass with the name of an actual Titanic passenger upon entering the exhibition and will find out if that passenger survived at the end. The exhibition is a 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.

RMS Titanic

These actual artifacts, recovered from two and one half miles below the surface of the North Atlantic, tell the story behind the legendary Titanic’s short journey from construction and destruction to eventual recovery. Walk her decks, peer into her cabins and meet her passengers and crew.

RMS Titanic

Described as a floating palace, the incomparable Titanic was deemed "practically unsinkable" by the White Star Line and its builders. However, on a calm April night in 1912, the massive luxury liner struck an iceberg and slowly sank into the North Atlantic. Since then, many items from the wreckage have been recovered and added to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.

RMS Titanic

The personal artifacts on display offer haunting, emotional connections to the forever-altered lives of those on board the Titanic. Visitors even have a chance to walk through authentically re-created first- and third-class rooms, with furnishings by original manufacturers.
