It's the first time ever the exhibit is being shown in New England!

Many people are fascinated by the story of the Titanic. Not just of the ship's sinking, but the story behind the construction of the boat, the glamorous decor, and the people who were on it for that doomed voyage.

Many people have seen the Leonardo DiCaprio/Kate Winslett movie from the 90's...but that only scratches the surface of the story behind the ship.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition comes to Portland this summer. The exhibit has been to select cities across the US...but never to New England...until now.

This exhibition is designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic‘s compelling human stories. It features more than 100 authentic artifacts set within replicas of cabins and other areas within the famous ill-fated ship.

Upon entering the exhibition, visitors will be drawn back in time to April 1912, when the ship embarked on its maiden voyage. They will receive a replica boarding pass, assume the role of a passenger, and follow a chronological journey through life on Titanic—from the ship’s construction to life on board, to the moments of impact and sinking, and the modern day efforts to recover and conserve the wreckage for future generations. Visitors can even touch an “iceberg” to feel just how cold the water was at the time that the ship sank.
