The Exhibition

February 10, 2012 through September 9, 2012 

Educational, emotional, and appropriate for all ages, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the life of Titanic. Along the way, visitors will learn countless stories of heroism and humanity that pay honor to the indomitable force of the human spirit in the face of tragedy.

The Exhibition has been created with a focus on Titanic’s compelling human stories told through authentic artifacts and exacting re-creations of the Ship’s interior. Delicate bottles of perfume, china bearing the logo of the White Star Line, and many other objects collected from the wreck site offer poignant connections to the lives abruptly ended or forever changed by one of the world’s greatest maritime tragedies.

Touching on every important aspect of Titanic’s story—from construction, launching, and life on board to the tragic sinking and dramatic rescue of more than 700 people—The Exhibition concludes with the amazing discovery of the ship 73 years after the sinking and the innovative recovery and conservation efforts made during the last 25 years.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will be open during a poignant time in the history of Titanic…during the centennial anniversary of this timeless tragedy. The Exhibition opens to the public at theNAT on February 10, 2012, and remains on view through September 9, 2012.
