“Respectful and Sensitive”
Review of Titanic The Artifact Exhibition - CLOSED

Titanic The Artifact Exhibition
Attraction details
Reviewed April 5, 2014

When I picked up the brochure on this at the Orange Country airport I was afraid this exhibit of salvaged artifacts from such a tragedy was going to be tacky, maybe even disrespectful of the 1,500 people who died, but it was done with sensitivity. The facts surrounding the sinking were carefully explained. Very interesting look into the past, especially the class system at the turn of the last century. I've watched a lot of documentaries on the sinking, but this really brought it home. Allow at least two hours to view the exhibit and the gift shop (lots of interesting books to browse through).

The adult admission is $21.95 and kids $14.95, but the brochure we got at the airport was good for up to six admissions at $12 each!

The exhibit building is right next to Knott's Berry Farm and across the street from Medieval Times. Plenty of free parking.

Fantastic exhibit! Each room is themed, from 1st class to 3rd class to engine room. The rooms are well laid out and to see actual items from the most famous ship sinking in history is somewhat surreal. The actors who introduce the beginning and the end of the exhibit did a great job. Definitely a must see.

We found a coupon for this in one of the books in our hotel room. It sounded like fun so we decided to check it out. So glad we did. It was wonderful. The staff greeting us were very friendly and helpful. There are so many articles to see and interesting facts to read about. The actors roaming the areas are great sources of information and add to the experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone of all ages. In fact we recommended this to our friends when they visited the area and they loved it as well. Oh yes, and the person (and his whole family) on the card I was given perished. The person on my wife's survived.

This was a really intriguing, well done exhibit.
When you enter, you are given a boarding pass, with a name of someone who was actually on the Titanic!
Then, you meet different people throughout the exhibit. If you take a minute and stop to talk to them, you will find that each of them is a real person from the Titanic too.
There were other people in the exhibit with us who just zoomed through it and barely stopped to look at things. They missed so much!
Stop and talk to the employees!!
They are really interesting and they have SO much knowledge!
Anyway, the artifacts are fascinating. The exhibit is really well done, and the actors/employees are very good.
At the end of the tour, you can see if your person survived or not.
I would definitely recommend this exhibit!

We had discount voucher which made this good value.. Nicely set out and full of artifacts and history. Live actor guides were good... We wernt offered audio guides but they may enhance your visit... Similar to Orlando... But not as elaborate would have liked more recreations of rooms however an enjoyable hour spent at full price would have felt a little cheated
