More than a century after the ill-fated maiden voyage of the Titanic, its story continues to captivate hearts worldwide. Melbourne Museum is thrilled to announce the arrival of TITANIC: The Artefact Exhibition, the world's most extensive and authentic Titanic exhibition, following a sold-out run in Paris. Exclusive to the Melbourne Museum, this exhibition showcases over 200 artefacts recovered directly from the ocean's depths.
As one of the most renowned tragedies in modern history, the Titanic's saga of passengers and crew still resonates, inspiring countless works of art. Through meticulous recreations of the ship's interiors, including the Grand Staircase, First Class Parlour Suite, and Verandah Cafe, alongside genuine objects rescued from the deep, visitors will gain unprecedented insight into the human stories of those on board, immersing themselves in that fateful night.
As visitors receive their boarding passes and step aboard, they will bear witness to the human side of the tragedy, exploring the personal stories and possessions of passengers and crew who faced unimaginable circumstances.
