My youngest son had to go to school and work on his birthday, so we didn’t really get so celebrate, so we took a little field trip as a belated celebration.
We went to see the Titanic exhibit that was on display a few hours away from our home, and did some shopping so he could spend some of his birthday money.
The Titanic was a little more pricey than normal museum fees, but I’m really glad we went.
We each received a boarding pass with the name of an actual Titanic passenger, and at the end of the tour we looked at a wall where we could look up the name of our passenger, to see if they lived or perished.
My daughter and I both had passengers that rode first class, and my son’s passenger rode second class.
Of the three of us, my passenger was the only one who survived.
It was a fascinating tour and we were able to see recreations of what our accommodations would have looked like.
There was a room full of fascinating artifacts recovered from the ship, including a whole set of completely unbroken set of au gratin plates.
The wood case they were held in had completely disintegrated under water before they were recovered, leaving all the plates neatly lined up in rows in the sand on the ocean floor.
If the exhibition comes to a city near you, I highly recommend it.
