Titanic: The Artefact Exhibition

I remember posting about the Titanic Artefact Exhibition around mind April this year and mum said she wished she could see it. And I told her, "Of course you can, we'll wait for you to come, the exhibition ends in October anyway!" The time came along and we dilly-dallyed for awhile before planning to book the tickets, also waiting for Tubby to get his cast off.

Little did we expect that tickets were booked out online for most of the sessions weeks in advance! But luckily the Museum reserves a number of tickets for walk-in customers everyday, and so someone had to go early in the morning to line up for the tickets at 9am. Thankfully Mr. Nice Guy(s) - Wai and Han volunteered and we got the tickets for the Sat 18 Sep, 11.15am session. :)

The guide explained the different displays that we'll explore - all numbered and given brief descriptions.
Weichao bought a new SLR camera and was testing it out with a shot of us at the lobby area.
The stairs leading down to the exhibiton halls featuring flags of the current showcase.
Mum and I after exiting the exhibition. It was strictly no photography / video.

Everyone was given a boarding pass before we entered the hall, based on your gender. And at the second last display room, you could find out if you "survived" or "died". Tubby was harping about how he was a First-Class passenger while we were Third-Class. But at least we survived - haha. :P Below are some scans from the program book showing some of the exhibits we saw:

A model of the Titanic - with photos and information on how it was built.Some of the passengers and the items recovered from the ship wreck.

The very famous Grand staircase with the bronze cherub - only in the First-Class area of the ship.A large iceberg model was built for people to feel how cold the temperature of the water was, that night when the ship sank.

Anyway there's heaps more photos on the Titanic Exhibition on Facebook if you're interested. ;)
