2018 got off to a flying start at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery with Brick History and the good times are set to continue with the arrival of another special exhibition, Titanic: Honour and Glory.
Opening on Monday 2 July 2018, Titanic: Honour and Glory encourages you to delve further into the great ocean liner’s history and personally come face-to-face with its incredible story.
From her conception to her premature demise, the legend of Titanic continues and is expertly portrayed through many rare and previously unseen awe inspiring artefacts from the ship itself and props from the hugely popular James Cameron movie.
Once you are immersed in the history of Titanic, you can re-create the famous Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet moment on a replica prow of the ship on the museum balcony.
In 2015, Titanic: Honour and Glory was ranked as one of the top five exhibitions in the UK by the prestigious Times newspaper rankings.
Sean Szmalc, founder of Titanic: Honour and Glory, said:
“Titanic was the largest maritime disaster of her time, a disaster with a tremendous loss of life, which shook the world in 1912.
“With the exhibition we aim to increase the knowledge of Titanic’s history and that of her sister ships and the White Star Line, which owned and operated many of the finest liners ever to sail the high seas. Each visitor will experience what it was like to have been aboard Titanic, the opulence, luxury and the ultimate survival during the tragedy. The exhibition will take you on a genuine voyage of discovery, bringing history to life where the past is always present.”
This exciting exhibition will be open at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery until Sunday 30 September 2018.
