Last week on the 100th anniversary of RMS Titanic’s launch on her maiden – and only – voyage, the South Street Seaport Museum opened “Titanic at 100: Myth and Memory” an exhibition that examines the disaster and a century’s worth of fascination with the ship’s dramatic story.
The exhibition features original objects from Titanic and her passengers – many of which have never before been publicly displayed – along with interactive elements and artifacts that show how the event has been remembered in popular culture.
On our visit to the exhibit, we were able to take a few photos and share them with you HERE. But it is definitely something to experience in person.
The exhibit runs through May 15. Gallery hours are 10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
