The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking with a new exhibit.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit includes a scale model of the ship and more than 250 artifacts recovered from the wreck site including dinnerware, architectural fixtures, jewelry, clothing and an iceberg that visitors can touch.

It is one of seven Titanic exhibits currently on display across the country and measures 14,000 square feet.

Before entering, visitors receive a replica boarding pass for an actual Titanic passenger. The exhibit, which is organized chronologically, begins with the ship’s design and construction. Guests can read stories of heroism and humanity, which create an

emotional connection to the ship’s story.

As visitors make their way through replicas of Titanic’s first- and third-class passenger rooms, hallways

and steam room, they’ll learn about everyday life on board as well as the ship’s sinking and recent recovery efforts.

The end of the exhibit includes a memorial wall, which guests can compare to their boarding pass to

discover whether their passenger survived or perished.

The exhibit even features the stories of several survivors that eventually settled in Texas and the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

The exhibit will be on display until March 24. Tickets are $26 for adults, $16 for children, $10 for toddlers and $19 for seniors and include general admission to the museum. They can be purchased at www.fortworthmuseum.org or by calling 817-255-9540.
