More About TITANIC: the Artifact Exhibition

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. One hundred years later, the South Carolina State Museum will pay tribute to the tragedy which continues to resonate through Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, where legendary artifacts conserved from the Ship’s debris field are showcased offering visitors 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.
