What is the Titanic Exhibition?
The Titanic Exhibition is an interactive experience that allows you to immerse yourself in the history of the Titanic. This exhibition is on now through January 2023 and is currently being held in the Los Angeles area.
What will I find in the Titanic Exhibition?
You will find there is a lot to see during this experience. Beginning with the ship’s construction, on to the ship in all it’s majestic beauty, details of the tragic event, and even information about deep sea expeditions.
Artifacts from Titanic and sister ships
The Titanic Exhibition has an abundant collection of artifacts relating to The Titanic and it’s sister ships in the cruise line.
Upon entering, there are plenty of printed brochures and ads for the coming of Titanic and its promise of beautiful cruises.
There is also a room filled with details about the plans and construction of the ship.
As you walk throughout the exhibit, you will find china from each class on the ship, along with furniture similar to what would have been on the Titanic. With the exception of one cup and saucer that was noted as being walked off of The Titanic, all other china sets and furniture at the exhibit appeared to be from sister ships of the same era.
Even though not everything on display was from the ship itself, I appreciated being able to see what the items would have looked like on Titanic’s first and only sail.
Oh the re-created ship spaces! This alone made the Titanic Exhibition experience for me! Walking up the walk way into the Titanic entrance and into the hallway made me feel like I was stepping into the ship.
And the grand staircase? Just trust me, it is something you want to see in person. It looks just like the one you see in the movie.
You’ll also find displays of what the third class rooms looked like, as well as the boiler room that kept the ship in motion.
One of the most pleasant surprises was the starry night ship deck! You don’t see it coming. When you walk through, it is awe-inspiring.
Detailed timeline of the Tragic Event
This exhibit would not be complete if it did not address the tragic event and all of the details leading up to it. I thought the exhibit did a lovely job of incorporating the beauty of the Titanic, along with the sad and avoidable tragedy that occurred. I liked that there were displays of actual passengers along with snippets of their personal lives and whether they made it off the ship.
Something I found particularly chilling and can’t seem to stop thinking about is the room with the fake iceberg display. There is a little hole inside with a large block of ice for you to touch. It gives you a sense of what the passengers endured when they landed in the water.
Exploration Expedition room
Towards the end of the exhibit, there is a room that covers the deep sea diving expeditions that have taken place to learn more about The Titanic. There you learn about the drones sent down and why they are required to take the place of humans. A particularly nice touch is the glass floor with sand and broken china on the floor so that you get a sense of what it looks like on the sea floor surrounding The Titanic.
The Titanic Exhibit would not be complete without some movie memorabilia. We found a pair of costumes, movie script, the Heart of the Ocean, and even the famous sketch that Jack made of Rose.
If you have someone that is a big Titanic movie fan, these are some gifts they are sure to love (aside from attending this exhibition of course 😉
Will my kid be ok to go?
All ages are welcome at the Titanic Exhibition. However, I really do urge you to consider if any kids in your group will be sensitive to the content. It really isn’t until the end that the exhibit turns a bit serious (as it should). Do you think it would stress your kid out if you have a cruise in the near future? Then maybe take that into consideration 😉
