On April 15, 1912, RMS Titanic, the world’s largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg claiming more than 1,500 lives and subsequently altering the world’s confidence in modern technology. The South Florida Science Center is currently hosting nearly 100 legendary artifacts conserved from the Ship’s debris field, offering a poignant look at this iconic Ship and its passengers. Officially setting sail on April 20, the Science Center’s first blockbuster exhibit in its expanded space will offer visitors a last chance to step back in time and become part of Titanic's 102 year journey. Artifacts on display include perfume vials, china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line and a chandelier, among others. The objects offer a haunting and emotional connection to the lives that were abruptly ended or forever altered.
