Titanic: The Artefact Exhibition

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition puts on display for the first time in South Africa authentic artifacts recovered from the wreck of the famous ship. Delicate perfume vials, porcelaindinner service carrying the White Star Line logo, personal belongings and many moreitems recreate a lost era and celebrate and remember all whose lives were lost or changed forever by one of the biggest maritime disasters that mankind witnessed in modern history.

Discover the stories of the South Africans on board Titanic, learn about passengers and crew, admire a recreated iceberg installed in the exhibition and come closer to the events of that fatal night…

Educational, emotional and appropriate for all ages, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the life of Titanic. Along the way visitors will learn countless stories of heroism and humanity that pay honor to the indomitable force of the human spirit in the face of tragedy.

The Exhibition has been designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic’s compelling human stories as poignantly told through authentic artifacts recovered from the wreck site of Titanic and extensive room re-creations. White Star Line and personal china, postcards, pieces of the Ship itself — these and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.

Upon entering Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, visitors will be drawn back in time to April 1912, when the Ship embarked on its maiden voyage. They’ll receive replica boarding pass, assume the role a passenger and follow a chronological journey through life on Titanic – from the Ship’s construction to life on board, the famous sinking, and the modern day efforts to recover and conserve the wreckage for future generations.

For the first time in South Africa, the spectacular Titanic Exhibition will be coming to Johannesburg and Cape Town.
