New Titanic exhibit on display at Queen Mary

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Mon Jul 31, 2017 5:07 pm

The Queen Mary is home to a new photographic exhibit of the Titanic that includes images spanning the oceanliner’s inception to its tragic demise more than a century ago.

Based on a historical novel of the same name, the “Titanic in Photographs — The Exhibition” showcase opened to the public on July 4, and will remain open through July 2018.

Located in the stern of the ship, next to the Engine Room, the new educational gallery area features over 100 images that document the ship-building process through completion, immersing visitors on a journey through the Titanic’s luxurious amenities, from its staterooms and First Class Lounge to the Turkish bath, swimming pool, and Grand Staircase.

The photos are paired with dozens of artifacts — like silverware, crystal, and china — from the Titanic, as well as from two sister oceanliners, the Olympic and the Carpathia.

Days after setting sail on its maiden voyage from England to New York, the Titanic sank after colliding with an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean in April 1912. More than 1,500 people died in what is considered one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history.
