The Titanic Exhibition觸摸生死線上的愛
On 8 April 2017, Sydney’s Byron Kennedy Hall opened its doors to an exciting yet harrowing exhibit of the RMS Titanic passenger liner, and its rst and nal voyage. The exhibition gave visitors a sensory experience of the historic affair, both the luxury and tragedy.
On the fateful night of 14 April 1912, while the ‘unsinkable’ liner was on its maiden voyage, it collided with an iceberg. In two hours, the ship broke apart and sank, taking the lives of some 1,500 passengers into the eerie depths of the ocean. An estimated 705 passengers managed to escape the doom by scurrying onto lifeboats before the ship foundered.
The exhibition allows visitors to immerse themselves in the opulence of the 1900s steamship cruiser and to experience the tragedy that befell it.
Visitors are taken on a voyage through this piece of tragic history, featuring recreations of the Titanic’s majestic interiors, such as the Grand Staircase and First Class Cabin. Over 375 artefacts from the ship are on display, including pieces taken directly from the ship before it set sail, pieces salvaged from the sea, and wellpreserved relics from those fortunate enough to have survived the disaster. A replica of the famous “Heart of the Ocean” diamond necklace, as well as props and set pieces from the original Titanic movie are also on display. As part of this experience, participants can undergo an actual iceberg encounter.
Charles Lightoller, a second officer on the Titanic was one of the last men to be rescued from the disaster. He wrote a 17-page account detailing the night of the Titanic’s doom. Charles recounts how brave men calmly accepted their fate, while women and children were whisked away onto lifeboats as quickly as possible. During the moments when the stern began to sink, while on the brink of death, passengers shouted, “I love you! I love you!”
The same voices echo through time and space as history remembers the calamitous day the unsinkable ship descended into the depths of oblivion. The exhibition brings this experience to life, and sadly, also recounts its death.
The exhibition will continue until 15 December 2017.
