Current Exhibits at Sloan Museum
Titanic The Artifact Exhibition
January 21-May 21, 2017
Tickets to the exhibition are timed and are on sale now. Advance purchase is recommended.
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 rooms, 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.
