Titanic drops anchor at Franklin Institute

On April 15th, 1912, one catastrophic event occurred that changed the lives of thousands of people forever. The RMS Titanic, a steam cruiser which boasted to be unsinkable, sank into the freezing cold Atlantic ocean, taking the lives of many innocent passengers.

One hundred years later, the Franklin Institute is honoring those victims with an artifact exhibit based upon the Titanic and its journey from start to finish. From November 10th, 2012 until April 17th, 2013, visitors from around the world can view more than 300 conserved artifacts taken directly from the sunken ship’s debris. The exhibit enables the audience to see the life of the Titanic and her passengers from its initial construction all the way to the end of her journey. Included in this exhibit are reconstructed rooms designed to replicate the originals onboard as well as authentic artifacts.

The exhibit is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. The tickets range from 22 dollars for children ages 3 to 11 years old, and 29 dollars for adults. Tickets can be purchased online at the Franklin Institute’s website.
Don’t miss this ship before it sets sail!
