On April 15th, 1912, Titanic, the world's largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg. This summer, 106 years later, Lipont Place is pleased to announce that major international exhibition — Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition — is coming to Metro Vancouver. As an important stop on its international tour, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition has already visited cities such as Paris, Las Vegas, Dublin, Stockholm, London, Cape Town, Guangzhou, Orlando, Melbourne, and others.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will open June 23, 2018 and run through January 11, 2019. The exhibition is designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic's compelling human stories, best told through more than 120 authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. Visitors are quickly drawn back in time to 1912, receiving a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger aboard Titanic. They begin their chronological voyage through Titanic, moving through the ship's construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking and amazing artifact rescue efforts. They will marvel at the re-created accommodations and press their palms against an iceberg while learning of countless stories of the maiden voyage.
