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.
