Go back in time to April 1912 and get your White Star Line Boarding Pass to experience the lavishness of the passageways and staterooms of the doomed Titanic Voyage. Learn about the ship’s design, view the over 300 artifacts salvaged from the ocean floor, and rediscover the story of that fateful Atlantic Passage.
Learn about the lives of the passengers and crew through the recovered artifacts. See the second largest Titanic piece ever recovered, the “Little Big Piece,” a 3-ton section of the original ship’s hull. Experience for yourself how cold the water would have been for the people plunged into the water by touching the iceberg exhibit.
John and I spent about 2 1/2 hours going through the exhibit; the amount of time you should allow for your visit depends on your personal level of interest. John and I were fascinated by the survivor’s stories and accounts of the tragedy. The artifacts in the museum are everything from everyday personal items, like combs and socks, to actual pieces of the ship and ship’s gear.
It becomes a personal experience because, upon entry, you will receive a replica boarding pass with an actual Titanic’s passenger’s name on it. During your visit, you will assume the role of that passenger and follow a chronological journey through his/her life on the Titanic.
