Titanic Exhibition visitors live or die depending on ticket

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Mon Apr 10, 2017 3:58 pm

Everyone entering the Titanic exhibition in Sydney is given a ticket that correlates with a passenger. As people leave they find out if they are among the 1,500 who died on the ill-fated ship or one of the 800 survivors.

The travelling exhibition, dedicated to telling the story of the ship's descent to the bottom of the Atlantic just two hours and 40 minutes after hitting an iceberg on April 15 in 1912, opened this weekend.

Exhibition curator Tom Zaller is one of the few people in the world to have visited the wreck.

"You have to get into this little tiny submarine that is 2 metres in diameter with two other people inside, and travel for two-and-a-half hours in complete darkness until you get to the bottom of the ocean. Then you see the wreck," he said.
