Visit our Heritage Centre in Saltcoats to see our latest exhibition: ‘Titanic: Honour and Glory’, which follows the history of one of the most infamous ships ever made.
From construction in Belfast, to the fateful maiden voyage, the exhibition features video interviews and a wide variety of artefacts including some of the beautiful china dinner plates upon which meals were served aboard Titanic.
Also on show will be a letter, written on board Titanic by Frederick Banfield, a passenger in second class. And, perhaps most poignantly of all, there will be a nameplate from one of Titanic’s lifeboats.
Visitors will also be able to see rare examples of in memoriam tributes made in the aftermath of the sinking, including Titanic relief fund cheques, which were given to support the families of those who were lost.
In addition to artefacts from Titanic, the exhibition will give visitors glimpses of the liner’s sumptuous interior and the luxury passengers enjoyed aboard a White Star liner through rare examples from her sister ships, Olympic and Britannic.
The exhibition will also showcase a selection of props from the film, Titanic, which will include some of the dresses worn by Kate Winslet, including the dazzling heart of the ocean necklace.
Our Heritage Centre is open Monday to Wednesday, 9:30am – 1pm & 2pm – 4:30pm and the last Saturday of every month.
The exhibition runs until the end of April so hurry along to see it before it departs!
