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.

Legendary artifacts conserved from the ship’s debris field are showcased, offering visitors a poignant look at this iconic ship and its passengers.
