Titanic attraction adds 3 guided tours
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, an attraction on Orlando’s International Drive, has added three themed tours led by actors in period costume.
The tours, which last about 75 minutes apiece, cost $5 above regular admission to the attraction. Advance reservations are required.
The new Titanic offerings include the following.
The Ship of Dreams tour focuses on the vessel from its construction to the technological advances of the time.
It’s offered at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m Wednesdays through Fridays.
The Titanic Adventures for Kids tour includes a scavenger hunt that goes room by room through the exhibit at 11:30 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Heroes of Titanic tour retells personal stories of passengers aboard the ship on April 15, 1912. It’s available at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
The I-Drive attraction features more than 300 artifacts and historical items, plus full-scale room re-creations.
It also houses the second largest piece of the Titanic ever recovered: the “Little Big Piece,” a 3-ton section of the ship’s hull.
The exhibition itself is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m Wednesdays through Sundays. Admission is $21.95 for ages 12 and older ($15.85 for children). There is a Florida resident discount (valid ID required) on the attraction’s website for $16.95.
