TITANIC The Artifact Exhibition
- 2013/5/25 ~ 2013/9/1
On April 15, 1912, Titanic, the world's largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg, claiming more than 1,500 lives and shaking the world's confidence in the infallibility of modern technology. Almost 100 years later, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, which showcases authentic artifacts retrieved from Titanic's debris field, arrives in Taipei.
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 created with a focus on Titanic's compelling human stories told through authentic artifacts and exacting re-creations of the Ship's interior. Delicate bottles of perfume, china bearing the logo of the elite White Star Line, and many other objects collected from the wreck site offer poignant connections to lives abruptly ended or forever changed by one of the world's greatest maritime tragedies.
From construction, launching, and life on board to the tragic sinking and dramatic rescue of some 700 people, the exhibition concludes with the amazing discovery of the Ship 73 years after its sinking, and highlighting the innovative recovery and conservation efforts made over the last 15 years.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will be showing at the National Taiwan Science Education Center for a limited engagement.
