Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition


100 years ago today, the Titanic hit an iceberg, which sent it to the ocean’s floor giving birth to one of humanities most unforgettable stories. At the Houston Museum of Natural Science visitors can pay their respect to the “Ship of Dreams” at the Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition showing through September.

Learn about the birth and untimely death of the ill-fated ship, its crew and passengers. Read stories, see actual artifacts from the ship and take a step back in time. Exhibit visitors can even touch a piece of the giant ships steel hull. When entering the exhibit everyone is presented with a boarding pass. Follow your passenger’s experience that night 100 years ago and see if you’ll live or die in the end.

Why do we still care about the Titanic? It is one of the best examples of the human spirit and ultimate struggle between man and nature. The artifacts from the ship take visitors back in time to that horrible night where many of the artifact’s owners followed the ship to its watery grave.

The condition of the artifacts is truly amazing. You can see an uncorked champagne bottle fully intact with its champagne, unbroken china and personal belongings to the ships passengers.

Though spectacular in the exhibit’s condition, it is still emotional knowing that most of the artifacts owners did not survive the tragedy a century ago. Visitors can experience the history, remember and pay their respects to perhaps the greatest maritime disaster in Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
