Life-sized recreations of the interiors of Titanic feature as part of an exhibition on the doomed ship — coming to London in December 2021.
Titanic The Exhibition promises a fresh take on the ever-magnetic story of the world's most famous (and infamous) ocean liner, which sunk in April 1912 on its maiden voyage, en route to New York.
Alongside recreations of the ship's cabins, radio room, and iconic staircase, 200 original objects — including personal letters and keepsakes — combine with an audio guide, for an altogether immersive-looking show (hopefully not quite as immersive as the Titanic episode of Rick and Morty, though).
The exhibition — which has already appeared in Europe and America — is curated by Claes-Göran Wetterholm, a historian who's dedicated more than 40 years of his life to investigating and studying the tragic story of the vessel.
If you can't wait for the exhibition, there are already excellent Titanic museums in Southampton and Belfast, and — for Londoners looking to learn more — the Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre in Kidbrooke has a remarkable collection of Titanic memorabilia, including a stopped watch belonging to one of the second class passengers, an officer's revolver and a toy pig with quite a story behind it.
Titanic the Exhibition, adults from £27.90, from 17 December 2021 (was originally due to open in February 2022, but has been brought forward). Exhibition located at Dock X London, Retail Park Unit 1, Surrey Quays Road, SE16 2XU.
