'Remembering Titanic - 100 Years'
The Australian National Maritime Museum exhibition Remembering Titanic – 100 years presents the history of this epic tragedy from construction to fateful sinking and rediscovery, and the controversy surrounding it.
Drawing on replica objects, ship models, memorabilia, newspapers and graphics, the exhibition concentrates on the human stories behind the disaster from the ‘unsinkable’ Molly Brown to the unsung heroes like junior wireless operator Harold Sydney Bride and Arthur Henry Rostron, Captain of the Carpathia which came to Titanic’s aid.
The exhibition also looks at the impact of Titanic on popular culture from books to films culminating in the new release Titanic 3D, in cinemas on April 5. Titanic, originally released in 1997, is the second biggest-grossing film to ever be released in Australia and movie lovers will now be able to experience it like never before in 3D.
On display in Remembering Titanic – 100 years will be nine costumes and selected props from the film including outfits worn by Kate Winslet, Leonardo Di Caprio and Billy Zane. The exhibition will also focus on the story of the unsinkable Molly Brown, played by Oscar Winner Kathy Bates in Titanic 3D.
Entry is included with general admission: $7 adults, $3.50 child/concession or $17.50 families.
