The report on the Perth Exhibition, at least according to the writer for the Daily Mail, is glowing. The exhibition does a good job of recreating what the ship looked like often with authentic memorabilia that came either from family members or floating in the ocean (this exhibition, unlike Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition by Premier Exhibitions does not have items brought up from Titanic).
The exhibition features 375 artefacts , replicas of the ship’s rooms and the heartfelt stories of the passengers on board and what they felt the night the large ship sunk into the freezing cold water. Some of the artefacts displayed in glass cases were found floating in the water after the boat sank or were hidden in the pockets of people who survived the disaster. Many others were donated by families of passengers. They range from the fine china, silverware and chairs displayed in the dining rooms to a pocket watch and clothing.
The pictures in the article really show that this exhibition is worth visiting if you have the chance. While you may not want to fly all the way to Perth to see it, the exhibition is traveling so chances are it will end up somewhere where you can get to it.
Information about the exhibition in Perth can be found at Perth Convention Center website.
