String Art Heartbeats, Command Center & More Talk of the Town #57

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.

  5. Thank you so much for hosting Angie, your Titanic tour sounds amazing. Have a wonderful week!!

  6. Wasn’t the Titanic exhibit amazing and eerie? If I remember correctly, the person I got was a mistress who perished. I thought it was well done and very interesting looking at all the recovered finds and reading the stories. Thanks for the party and I hope your week has been a good one so far.

  7. Angie, thank you for the party. The Titanic exhibit sounds very good and what a great idea of giving you a ticket of an actual passenger’s name. It really makes you part of the whole experience.

    xo Dianne
