On April 10, 1912, the famous Titanic began a journey across the Atlantic carrying the lives of 2,228 men, women and children from Europe to North America. Five days later, it began a different journey that has ran full steam ahead for almost 100 years and keeps sailing on … to the Indiana State Museum.

The museum continues this adventure through the much anticipated exhibit, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.

Visitors will begin their chronological journey of the Titanic’s maiden voyage by first moving through the Ship’s construction, to learning about all the state-of-the art equipment and first’s of it’s kind, to experiencing life on board and then concluding with the ill-fated sinking. The Exhibition also features more than 240 actual artifacts recovered from the wreckage and includes re-created first and third class cabins along with a view of the Ship’s cargo. Kids of all ages will also be able to get up close and touch a glacier inside the museum. Making the Exhibition personable, each guest will receive a replica boarding pass that includes information about a passenger on board the Titanic.

Timed-tickets are required for this exhibit. Tickets for Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition are $10 per person for members and $17 per person for non-members. Please call 317.232.1637 to purchase tickets. They are also currently available for online purchase. The exhibit runs Sept. 25 through Jan. 16, 2011.
