Premier Exhibitions: TITANIC: THE ARTIFACT EXHIBITION
May 23–September 7, 2015
National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium
One-hundred and three years ago, in the early morning of April 15, 1912, the “practically unsinkable” RMS Titanic, then the largest ship in the world sank into the frigid waters of the North Atlantic after a collision with an iceberg. The latest triumph of the White Star Line and a modern engineering marvel, Titanic sank on her maiden voyage to New York taking more than 1,500 lives with her. A tragedy forever etched in our collective consciousness and immortalized in print and film, the story of Titanic is as epic as the ship itself.
