Choose the audio tour for this exhibit, and you won't be disappointed. When you walk in, you are given a boarding ticket, that assigns you a passenger and class. At the end, you see if you would have survived the sinking of the Titanic.
I have always been fascinated by the story of the Titanic and how magnificent the ship was. Although I liked the 1990s movie, I was more into the documentaries about her. I loved reading the information, although a lot of it was not new to me, and seeing the artifacts that have been recovered. My favorite part of this exhibit is how the atmosphere almost makes you feel like you are there. This is truly an experience, not just an exhibit. My twelve-year-old son thoroughly enjoyed it, too, until we came to the iceberg, when he ceased to care about anything else around him. Thank goodness that is near the end. I must add, though, that we did spend about 2.5 hours in the exhibit. Although I am sure you could spend less, we wanted to take in everything. At the end, I would have been the only one to make it out alive, though I honestly identified more with the choice of Ida Strauss to stay with her husband. Their love story was the most touching part to me. My son was able to get a necklace with a piece of coal from the ship in it at the gift shop.
