Titanic & Liverpool Exhibition
'Titanic & Liverpool; the untold story' - an exhibition at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, UK
To mark the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic, this compelling exhibition explores Liverpool, UK's central role in the Titanic story.
The exhibition features previously unseen collections of international significance including material from Merseyside Maritime Museum's extensive archives. It complements the museum's permanent gallery, the hugely popular 'Titanic, Lusitania and the Forgotten Empress' (http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/maritime/collections/liners/).
Told from perspectives of key personalities in the drama, the exhibition gives a unique insight into events surrounding the launch, voyage, the sinking and its aftermath. This is an incredible story told from a Liverpool angle.
'Not only was the Titanic's sinking a major world event, the tragedy was a bitter blow to the port and the people of Liverpool. The new exhibition lifts the lid on this largely-overlooked turmoil in the wake of the sinking which resounds to this day', says Dr Alan Scarth, author of 'Titanic and Liverpool'.
