The Titanic 100th Anniversary Exhibition at the Henry Ford Museum

To commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the Titanic ill-fated voyage, the Henry ford Museum of Michigan is presenting the largest touring Exhibition of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.

The 10,000 square-foot, newly-redesigned and expanded Exhibition features more than 300 artifacts of the iconic ship, an authentically re-created first and third class cabins and the Titinac’s social hub, the Grand Staircase.

“We are privileged to host this extraordinary exhibit, especially to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of Titanic,” said Patricia Mooradian, president of The Henry Ford. “Known as one of the greatest innovations from that era, this ship was ahead of its time with its top notch engineering, modern equipment and luxuries.

Touted by the media as the ship that was ‘virtually unsinkable,’ no one could believe the magnitude of this disaster that occurred in April of 1912. As Americans, it’s a story that resonates with us all.”

The Exhibition of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will be on display at the Henry Ford Museum from March 31th through September 30, 2012. For more information, call 313-982-6001 or visithttp://www.thehenryford.org/titanic.
