On April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic left its harbour in Southampton en route for New York City. There were 2,224 people on board, including some of the wealthiest people in the world. After colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage, 1,500 lives were lost, along with the ship and its lavish contents.
Now, almost exactly 106 years later, those remains will be on display in Vancouver for the first time.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is a world-class exhibition that tells the true and untold stories from the world’s most infamous “unsinkable” ship. The exhibition, which has made waves around the world, will open in Vancouver on June 23, 2018. Limited daily tickets are available HERE.
Taking place at Lipont Place in Richmond, B.C., Titanic Vancouver allows visitors to experience exactly how the ship would have looked and felt on its maiden voyage.
Highlights include authentic artifacts recovered from directly from the ocean floor. See the actual dinnerware, mechanical parts and the personal accessories that have been carefully recovered through ongoing conservation and research efforts.
In addition to recovered artifacts, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition pieces together personal stories from actual Titanic survivors. Personal stories offer a unique insight into the shocking tragedy. These stories are worked into the exhibit, which can also be enjoyed through guided tours and audio guides (offered in multiple languages).
One of the most fascinating aspects of the exhibit of room replications that offer visitors the opportunity to board Titanic using a replica White Star Line boarding pass belonging to an actual passenger. From there you’ll be able to touch a (real) iceberg and learn more about the world’s most famous ship.
