13.42. TITANIC: THE ARTIFACT EXHIBITION

February 18, 2013

I am personally excited to see this Titanic exhibit at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. I have been told this is not an exhibit for the entire family. The only reason I say that is the exhibit requires a lot of reading and is not a hands on exhibit for kids, so unless your kids are really into reading and staying by your side it might be better to make this a date adventure. Here are the details from the GRPM press release:

On April 15, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg claiming more than 1,500 lives and subsequently altering the world’s confidence in modern technology. In Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, more than 150 legendary artifacts conserved from the Ship’s debris field are showcased offering a poignant look at this iconic Ship and its passengers.

The Exhibition has been designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic’s compelling human stories as best told through 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 — these and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.

The exhibition will be open from: 9:00AM to 5:00PM Monday, 9:00AM – 9:00PM Tuesday (last tour at 8 p.m.), 9:00AM – 5:00PM Wednesday – Saturday, and 12:00PM – 5:00PM Sunday. The museum will also extend its hours for the following time periods until 9:00 PM: February 25 – March 1, March 18 – March 22, April 1 – April 7 (Spring Break Week), May 27 – May 31, June 24 – June 28 and July 1- July 3, July 7. Get your tickets early to guarantee your visit, tickets are timed and limited. The fee includes admission to the exhibition, and to the entire Grand Rapids Public Museum; adults – $17, seniors – $16, children (3-18) – $12, children (2 and under) – Free. Member fees are: adult – $12, senior – $11, member child (3 to 18) – $10, children (2 and under)
