About the Exhibition
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition has concluded its run at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition has been designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic's compelling human stories as best told through hundreds of authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. Perfume from a maker who was traveling to New York to sell his samples, china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line, even a 3,000 pound portion of Titanic's hull—these and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.
Visitors are quickly drawn back in time to 1912 upon entrance, as each receives a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger. 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, visit the Verandah Cafe, and press their palms against an iceberg while learning of countless stories of heroism and humanity.
One of the many galleries is dedicated to Minnesota connections, where visitors can learn about how the sinking of the great ship strongly resonated even locally. In the "Memorial Gallery" guests take their boarding pass to the memorial wall and learn if their passenger and traveling companions survived or perished.
New in St. Paul! Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at the Science Museum of Minnesota features the worldwide debut of artifacts from RMS Carpathia, the ship that answered Titanic's distress call. These newly-recovered items paint a picture of the historic rescue that captured the imaginations of people around the world.
