Almost 98 years after it sank on a calm april night in 1912, the spirit of Titanic returns to Ireland. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, which has been seen by more than 22 million people worldwide, will make its long awaited debut in Ireland in the Citywest Convention Centre Dublin.
This speciallly designed exhibition focuses on the legendary RMS Titanic's complelling human stroies as best told through extensive room re-creation and more than 300 authentic artefacts recovered from the Titanic's wreck site. In addition, there will be 19 artefacts which have never been seen anywhere in the world before.
Visitors are quickly drawn back in time to 1912, as each receives a replica boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger upon entrance. The visitors are then immersed in the Exhibition as they take a chronological journey through Titanic; from the Ship’s construction to life on board, the ill fated sinking, and amazing artefact rescue efforts.
One special gallery will be dedicated to local Irish connections where visitors discover the country’s reaction and ties to the event. In the final gallery guests will take their boarding pass to the Memorial Wall and learn if their passenger and travelling companions survived or perished.
Artefacts in the exhibit include;
