Be A Titanic Passenger
Reminisce the majestic grandeur by first getting your boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger or crew member. Inside, the ship is surrounded by more than 400 artifacts directly from the ship and its passengers. So imagine how people and experts got into a 12,600 feet below North Atlantic just to salvage some artifacts from the wreckage.
The artifacts on the museum are on display for the first time in the world. It is valued at over four and a half million dollars. Included in the collection are rare photographs, silverware, deck chairs, and even listen to stories told by real survivors.
Inside the Titanic Museum Attraction is the Titanic Memorial Room where 2,208 names line this historic wall. Also, you can visit and shovel coals in the Titanic’s Boiler Room.
Going back to the ship tour, visitors get to touch a real iceberg and a 28-degree water where passengers used to face 100 years ago. There are also third-class hallways and even third-class bedroom for 4 people. You’ll be amazed at how the first-class sitting room was intricately made – with a fireplace, top-of-the-line wall design, accented by quality chairs.
Visitors can also try the sloping decks, experiencing RMS Titanic first-hand. To add more romantic feel and vibe, there’s a 110-year-old piano in which someone’s playing Titanic’s official soundtrack, “My Heart Will Go On”.
Let’s talk about the Grand Staircase, shall we? The famous staircase, which is a perfect replica of the 1997 movie was constructed from the original Harland & Wolff plans with its oak carvings, gold-leaf accents, and cherub statue. Not only that, remember the glass dome ceiling shown when Rose was down the staircase? It’s also perfectly re-made! Even the floor was made of something said to be expensive for 1912.
Plus! Girls are going to love the “Heart of the Ocean” style necklace which is for sale in the gift shop.
