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. 101 years later, the Lexington Center Museum & Gallery will pay tribute to the tragedy, which continues to resonate, through Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. 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 will be open from October 5, 2013 through January 26, 2014. Adult Admission is just $12!
Visitors are quickly drawn back in time to 1912 upon entrance, as each receives a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger aboard Titanic. They then 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. They will marvel at the re-created First and Third class cabins, and press their palms against an iceberg while learning of countless stories of heroism and humanity. In the “Memorial Gallery” guests will take their boarding pass to the memorial wall and discover whether their passenger and traveling companions survived or perished.
