Museum Marks Titanic’s 100th Anniversary with Ship's Artifacts
This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of the most famous maritime tragedy in history- when the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean and sank to the seabed, ending more than 1,500 lives. The saga of the Titanic has captured the world’s imagination since that day.
Mark the anniversary by viewing hundreds of artifacts retrieved from the ship itself at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at the Houston Museum of Natural Science running now through September 3.
The exhibit tells the story of the ship as well as those aboard her on that fateful maiden voyage through the collected artifacts and accurate recreations of Titanic’s interior.
Though the exhibit runs until the fall, this is surely the best weekend to go and be part of such an historic event on the 100th anniversary of its occurrence.
Tickets are $27 for adults, $20 for children and seniors, and $12 for museum members.
The Museum of Natural Science is located at 1 Hermann Circle Drive, in Houston.
