On the morning of April 15th, 1912, the Titanic sank in the icy waters of the North Atlantic and has since sparked intrigue for its story and those of the people on board. More than a century later, Titanic: The Exhibition – produced by Imagine Exhibitions and Fever opened the doors to exploration in Los Angeles.
As the largest and most immersive touring Titanic exhibition, the experience is a narrative journey that brings to light the fates of the passengers and crew aboard the sinking ship is now open at Beverly Event Venue (4327 Beverly Blvd) in Los Angeles. Tickets are available for purchase through Fever here with pricing starting at $29.50 for adults.
Tom Zaller, President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions said: “I love this story. Titanic has been a part of my life since the late 90’s when I had the incredible opportunity to dive into the rec site, and since that firsthand experience, I’ve presented hundreds of exhibitions about the ship. I’m always amazed by how people continue to be fascinated by the story; it's every man’s story - the story of hopes and dreams. Our exhibition is designed to immerse the visitor in the history of the Titanic, with incredible media experiences and environments that bring the story to life.”
The Exhibition is an interactive exhibition that tells the chronological and dramatic tale of the design, creation, launch, maiden voyage and tragedy of the largest and most luxurious ship in the world at that time. Guests will admire hundreds of artifacts that encompass items that survived the sinking of the Titanic and her sister ships, as well as props and costumes from the beloved James Cameron 1997 blockbuster film Titanic. Set inside fully immersive re-creations of the ship’s interior, the artifacts help navigate guests through Titanic's timeline from sinking to underwater discovery.
During the tour, you'll have the opportunity to see the dock from which The Titanic set sail for the first time, peruse the galleries and boiler room, visit opulent suites, and descend the grand staircase.
Approximately 200 objects and previously unseen personal artifacts that tell the stories of the ship’s crew and passengers will be on display, as well as life-size replicas of the Titanic's interiors, including the first-class suites and third-class cabins, that will help you learn more about the history of the ship. The show, which lasts about 90 minutes, will also feature audio guides.
Once “aboard,” visitors will receive a boarding pass corresponding with a passenger on the ship – allowing each guest to follow an individual passenger story as they explore the first, second, and third-class galleries with their corresponding artifacts. The stories of love and loss culminate in the final galleries, showcasing personal effects and individual anecdotes surrounding a tribute wall where each passenger’s fate is revealed.
Music from the era plays throughout the exhibit as patrons examine incredibly detailed recreations of the ship's interiors including a two-story full-scale recreation of the ship’s famous Grand Staircase, the first class hallway and millionaires suite, the third class hallway and cabin, the boiler room, and the ship exterior promenade deck complete with a starry night sky.
The Discovery Gallery, dedicated to the discovery and research of the Titanic’s wreckage site, features a raised glass floor; simulating the impression of walking along the ocean floor. Broken china in the sand allows visitors to experience some of what discovery teams saw during dives to the Titanic site.
The exhibition also includes a striking and informative film that provides an in-depth look at the most recent forensic research related to the collision, breakup, and sinking of the Titanic and award-winning underwater photography of the Titanic lines the walls of the Discovery Gallery in a stunning display of the ship’s current state on the seafloor.
