Discovery and Display

The Wreck of the Titanic, National Maritime Museum

The first public display of artefacts recovered from RMS Titanic illuminated many facets of the tragedy of the great ship.

Artefacts from the sea floor were presented in open display which illustrated the position and condition of the wreck in situ. Cased displays contained fragile objects and were supported by recreations of the ship’s luxurious interiors.

Passengers from all social strata were represented through the objects on display and the story of the voyage was told from their very different perspectives.

The exhibition further featured a powerful presentation of the science behind the Ballard/ IFREMER expedition’s success in locating the wreck.
