Over a hundred years later, Imagination Station will explore engineering, physics, and social studies with the science of Titanic. The galleries in this fascinating exhibition features artifacts recovered from the ocean floor along with room re-creations and personal stories.
“The sinking of Titanic has captivated the world for over a hundred years. We are excited to bring this compelling Exhibition to Toledo and allow the community to experience the powerful and enduring story of Titanic,” said Lori Hauser, CEO of Imagination Station. “The real artifacts and compelling human stories in the exhibition bring science and history to life in a way few things can.”
The exhibition has been designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic’s compelling human stories as best told through 150 authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. Perfume from a maker who was traveling to New York to sell his samples, china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line, even a pair of men’s dress shoes—these and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.
Visitors are drawn back in time to 1912 upon entrance, as each receives a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger on board Titanic. They then begin their chronological journey through the life of Titanic, moving through the Ship’s construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking and amazing artifact rescue efforts.
They will marvel at the re-created First Class and Third Class accommodations, and press their palms against an iceberg while learning of countless stories of heroism and humanity. In the “Memorial Gallery” guests will take their boarding pass to the memorial wall and discover whether their passenger and traveling companions survived or perished. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is sponsored by BP.
