Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition sails into The Franklin Institute this November showcasing more than 300 legendary artifacts conserved from the ship's debris field, offering visitors a poignant look at this iconic ship and its passengers.

The 15,000 square foot exhibition takes visitors on a chronological journey through the life of Titanic, from the building of the legend to life on board. The Exhibition has been designed with a focus on the compelling human stories as best told through authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. From China etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line, to perfume from a maker who was traveling to New York to sell his samples, the many authentic objects offer haunting and emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.
