Experience Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition today at TELUS World of Science – Calgary!
Visit today to experience the legend of Titanic like never before! Through Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, 296 authentic artifacts conserved from the Ship’s debris field are showcased, offering visitors a poignant look at the 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 travelling to New York to sell his samples and china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line, along with many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered. 11 conserved objects on display at TELUS World of Science – Calgary are making their world-debut.
Visitors are quickly drawn back in time to 1912 upon entrance, as each receives a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger aboard Titanic. They then begin their chronological journey through the life of the Titanic, moving through the Ship’s construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking and amazing artifact rescue efforts.
Until June 27th, you are invited to have your picture taken on the Grand Staircase, press your palms against an iceberg, participate in guided tours and other special programming, all while learning countless stories of heroism and humanity. Exhibition audio-guides are available in English, French, Spanish-US, Spanish-European and Portuguese.
