TITANIC THE EXHIBITION has sailed into Sydney, and you get to be the passenger (without the watery grave at the end). The world’s most famous ill-fated ship will has come alive with artefacts and interactive recreations at the Byron Kennedy Hall in The Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park.
Titanic The Exhibition unravels the mystery of the unforgettable tale of RMS Titanic’s first and final deadly voyage in a thrilling self-guided tour. For a limited time only families and fans can re-live the opulence and tragedy of the world’s most famous ill-fated voyage through dramatic room recreations, 100-year-old artefacts and hands-on activities.
Titanic The Exhibition features over 375 artefacts taken directly from the pre-sinking Titanic and her nearly identical sister ship Olympic, providing a rare opportunity to view the grand Titanic as she was before falling to her watery grave. Rare artefacts were removed from Titanic before she sailed to New York, and a lucky few pieces survived the disaster secured in the coat pockets of those rescued. Original props and set pieces from James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster film Titanic are also on display, including a recreation of the famous “Heart of the Ocean” diamond necklace.
This all-sensory exhibition experience transports visitors back to 1912 to absorb the sights, sounds and smells of opulent and excessive luxury steamship travel. Titanic was the largest and most luxurious ship of its time, and visitors will learn of the ships’ place in history from her conception and construction to that unforgettable day of disaster.
Each entry to the exhibition is completely unique, as every visitor will receive a Boarding Pass that contains the personal information of an actual First, Second or Third Class passenger. Visitors are encouraged to feel connected to the passengers’ journey by learning about their background and life onboard. The experience culminates in the Memorial Gallery, where visitors learn of their chosen passenger’s fate on the cold early morning of 15 April, 1912.
“Everyone can relate to someone on Titanic and the story of her voyage still resonates all over the world,” said Tom Zaller, President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions Pte. Ltd. “This particular exhibition, that will appeal to all ages, immerses the visitor in the moving tale of Titanic’s voyage at every part of her journey – allowing visitors to experience the sights, sounds and stories as if they were on the ship.”
Titanic The Exhibition has fittingly found its home in one of Australia’s oldest and most beautiful exhibition buildings, The Byron Kennedy Hall, located withinThe Entertainment Quarter. From the stunning central dome supported by six ornate pillars to its distinctive bell tower, The Byron Kennedy Hall is itself an artefact of 1920’s charm and style, precisely complimenting that of Titanic’s 1920s England.
