Thank you to Premier Exhibitions for sponsoring today’s post.
This past weekend, Amy and I were invited to visit the new Titanic: The Experience in Buena Park located in the former Movieland Wax Museum location.
We were provided a boarding pass upon check-in with the name and history of a real passenger of Titanic so that we can experience the exhibit as a passenger. At the end of the tour, we were able to determine whether or not the person on our boarding pass survived.
Titanic’s Whistle ~ “Eaton: I was aboard the recovery vessel when the whistles were recovered. And I remember specifically the middle whistle coming up from the bottom and breaking the surface of the water. And it sparkled and it glistened and it shone and it reflected the sunlight. And I said, “There’s a voice I’d like to hear someday.””
I found this video on Youtube when researching the Titanic Whistle when I came home. Jack Schroeder recorded this video on February 1999 at Union Depot, St. Paul, MN. First whistle blowing is at the very beginning and the second blowing is at 1:32 in this video.
Grand Staircase of the RMS Titanic which was thought to be the entrance for the First Class passengers.
You can just imagine yourself walking up the stairs or down this First Class hallway.
First Class Cabin
I searched Edith Russell on Google to learn more about her and found the following interesting video.
Throughout the exhibit, there are individual photographs and biographies of Titanic passengers.
As you walk through the exhibit, you will see the warnings of the ice.
This picture below is what the memory of the Titanic is all about ~ the First Class Passengers, the second class passengers, the third class passengers, and the crew. This picture lists each of their names and lists whether or not they survived. The list is alphabetical order so you can look at the Boarding Pass that you received upon checking in and find out your fate of your experience. Do not forget to look up the names that might be listed on your boarding pass of who might be traveling you.
On September 1, 1985, RMS Titanic was discovered located about 370 miles (600 km) south-southeast of the coast of Newfoundland, lying at a depth of about 12,500 feet (3,800 m). Some of the artifact remains are shown below.
Their goal was to display the artifacts to closely resemble as they were found.
At the end of the tour, you arrive in the gift shop. You can purchase souvenirs and replicas of the Titanic place settings from First, Second, and Third Class.
