“It’s a museum not to be missed.” — USA TODAY

Stepping into the History…..

We booked the tickets online and as it was a time-slotted tour, made sure we were there 15 mins earlier than the time on the tickets. It was almost boarding a ship! Upon entry, we received a boarding pass featuring the name of a real passenger.  It’s like having a VIP ticket to the past! 🎟️The destiny of the assigned passenger was unveiled at the end of the visit, accompanied by a summary about the passenger conveniently written on the boarding pass!🚢💼 ##TitanicExhibit #HistoricalArtifacts

At the entrance, you will be provided a pre-recorded tape to guide you through the exhibitions. 🤳Be aware! Photography is prohibited on the first floor!

Do you know the Titanic had a Twin Sister?

This floor is dedicated to the history of the voyage of Titanic. Where I came to know, that the White Star Line owned two twin ships, the RMS Olympic and RMS Titanic, which were the largest at that time. Ironically, they advertised the Titanic as an “Unsinkable Ship.” 🚢📜 #WhiteStarLine #TitanicAdvertisement

Maiden Voyage of Titanic

On April 10, 1912, the Titanic started its maiden voyage from Southampton and sailed across the Channel to Cherbourg. After that, it headed to Queenstown (which is now called Cobh) before going out into the wide Atlantic on its way to New York. But, uh-oh, it hit an iceberg near Newfoundland, Canada and just 3 hours after the collision, the Titanic sank, tragically claiming the lives of around 1,500 passengers! 😢🚢❄️ ##TitanicVoyage

But why it was claimed as Unsinkable?

The Titanic’s engineering secret lay in its 16 supposedly watertight compartments designed to prevent disaster. However, when the iceberg struck, 6 compartments were breached. Despite efforts to seal them, the tilt of the bow caused water spillage. Surprisingly, these compartments were only watertight horizontally, not vertically! 🚢❄️🔧 #TitanicEngineeringSecrets

Was this collision avoidable?

The accident involving the Titanic is often debated, but it is generally considered that certain measures could have potentially avoided the disaster!   #TitanicSafetyIssues#TitanicEngineeringSecrets #TitanicSteelAnalysis #TitanicWarnings #LookoutChallenges

Do you want to learn more? Let’s take a look into some theory and research results-

📡📼 During the Titanic’s journey, radio operators Phillips and Bride received iceberg warnings, relaying most to the bridge, but not all!

🏔️❄️ On April 14, approaching an iceberg area, Captain Smith adjusted course but maintained a speed of about 22 knots! Very high indeed!

❄️🚢 A Mesaba warning at 9:40 PM wasn’t relayed to Titanic’s Bridge!

📞📢 At 10:55 PM, the Californian reported ice halting. Phillips occupied with passenger messages, scolded the Californian for interrupting!

👀🔭 Lookouts Fleet and Lee were looking out without binoculars!

👩‍🔬👨‍🔬 Some scientists suggest that the Titanic’s watertight compartments worsened the disaster by trapping floodwaters in the bow. Without them, water dispersion might have kept the ship afloat for six additional hours!

🔬🚢Titanic’s steel, analyzed microscopically, unveiled a tale of vulnerability. Comprising semi-kilned low carbon steel with elevated sulfur content amplifying the risk of fracture!

🚤🆘 The Titanic was designed to carry a total of 64 lifeboats, but it sailed with only 20 lifeboats, which was good for only 1100 passengers out of 2200!

👥🚤 In addition to the shortage of lifeboats, the lifeboats on the Titanic were not filled to their full capacity, resulting in the boats sailing with fewer passengers than they could accommodate.

When were the Wrecks of the Titanic discovered?

In the museum, there’s a theater showcasing documentaries on the Titanic’s excavation. 🎬🚢 #TitanicDocumentaries

110 Years 🌊🚢 the Titanic’s wreckage has quietly rested 13,000 feet Beneath the Atlantic Waves, about 400 nautical miles from Newfoundland, Canada. 🌊⚓

Dr. Robert Ballard, armed with Argo/Jason technology, achieved the historic discovery of the Titanic! Overcoming obstacles and with Navy support, he unveiled the ship’s wreckage on September 1, 1985. 🌊🚢The groundbreaking images sent shockwaves globally, marking a transformative moment in deep-sea exploration. 🌊🔍

Let’s Get Back to the Museum Tour…

🚢😲 One of the highlights of this visit is the museum’s jaw-dropping replica of the Titanic’s grand staircase. #TitanicReplicaStaircaseTitanicReplicaStaircase

Do you remember this iconic scene from Titanic?

Check out the real deal – personal stuff from the Titanic on the second floor! 👗👜 but unfortunately taking pictures of the artifacts was strictly prohibited. On display, there are more than 400 genuine Titanic artifacts, valued collectively at over $4 million, each accompanied by well-documented evidence of their origin.

Take a moment to honor the brave souls on the Memorial Wall. 😢 It’s like a virtual hug to the heroes, and it’s impossible not to get a little teary-eyed.

Do you know about the “Titanic Orphans”?

Edmond and Michel Navratil, known as the “Titanic Orphans,” were the only children to survive the Titanic without a parent. Their father, Michel Sr., separated from their mother and kidnapped them, and the last sighting was when he placed them in a lifeboat. 🚢👦👦 ##TitanicHistory

There is a survivor wall dedicated to 705 survivors of the tragic sinking. Survival rates on the Titanic: 🥇 First Class – 60-65% survived, 🥈 Second Class – 40-45%, 🥉 Third Class – 20-25%. The “women and children first” policy played a crucial role. 🚢⚓ ##TitanicSurvivalRatesitanicSurvivalRates

One True Love Story

🕊️🚢 Isidor Straus, a U.S. Congressman and co-owner of Macy’s department store, along with his wife Ida, crafted a remarkable love story aboard the Titanic. 💑🚢 #StrausLoveStoryStrausLoveStory #IdaStraus #IdaIsidorlove

On the Titanic’s sinking night, Isidor and Ida Straus were near Lifeboat No. 8. Despite a chance for Isidor to join, he insisted on women and children first.

Encouraging Ida to board, she refused, saying-

“We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go.”

Witnessed by many, the Strauses were last seen arm in arm on the deck. 🚢💔 #TitanicTragicMoment
