Titanic exhibition visits Milton Keynes before world tour

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Mon May 23, 2016 6:38 am

The premiere of a new Titanic Exhibition is about to start a five year world tour, but its only UK stop is in Milton Keynes.

The exhibition at Middleton Hall in the centre:mk is not only displaying photos of the most famous ship ever built but will also be showing unique items from the ship itself, from the music sheet the band played whilst the ship sank, to a bed from one of the cabins.

The gallery-style exhibition takes the visitor on a journey back in time, through the eyes of those who were there, including Harland & Wolff's professional photographer, Robert Welch, period press photographers & passengers on board Titanic and the rescue ship, Carpathia.


Alongside many of the images are display cabinets, containing more than 130 genuine artefacts from Titanic and her identical twin sister ship, Olympic. These rare and often unique items bring the photographs to life, transporting the visitor back in time and placing them in the picture.

Amazing how well preserved that bed seems to be considering it's been under water for about 100 years.

Hello Eric. I'm fine. Been retired now for 18 months and life is great. Was thinking last night that maybe the bed and Wallace Hartley's violin escaped together. This exibition is about a 2 hour drive so may go to it and let them know what I think about that bed.
