On the fateful morning of April 15, 1912, the Titanic sank in the icy waters of the North Atlantic and claimed the lives of 1,496 people. More than a century after the 1912 tragedy, Titanic: The Exhibition – created by award-winning exhibitions creator and producer Musealia – has arrived in the DC metropolitan area after successful runs in New York City and London.
Titanic: The Exhibition, a narrative journey bringing to light the fates of the passengers and crew aboard the sinking ship, is now open at National Harbor through December 10.
The content of the exhibition is the result of years of work and research led by the Musealia team, the Spanish company that created some of the most successful historical exhibitions in recent years in Europe and the USA, and the prestigious Swedish historian and author Claes- Göran Wetterholm, one of the world’s foremost experts on the Titanic.
Bringing a selection of personal artifacts never-before-seen in the DMV that tell touching stories of the ship’s passengers and crew, Titanic. The Exhibition includes more than 200 objects from passengers and crew members, retelling the human side of the story of the ship’s sinking. Visitors can experience life-size recreations of some of the ship’s interiors and learn more about the ship’s history through dynamic audio guides featuring music and sound effects.
Far more than just a display of historic items, Titanic. The Exhibition is a unique narrative experience, a tale of the people aboard history’s most legendary ship on its maiden and final journey. The experience encourages its guests to travel back in time through photographs, handwritten letters, wayward keepsakes, and other personal belongings, telling countless stories about the lives and fates of those on board. Boasting original objects never-before-seen in the DMV, visitors will feel connected to the Titanic’s passengers as they listen to their testimonies, discover their stories by walking in their footsteps, and explore detailed recreations of the ship’s interior.
