Titanic - The Exhibition
The dramatic history of the sinking of the Titanic comes to Linz
March 26 to July 3, 2016 - Tabakfabrik Linz
The Titanic is the most famous ship of all times. A miracle of technology which went on her maiden voyage to America at the beginning of the 20th century – and which disappeared in the icy North Atlantic during a night in April 1912. From the 2,200 passengers only 700 survived the catastrophe. There are many books and online sources available for further information on Titanic. It is worth noting that even the factual information about Titanic varies widely between the different sources. For all that is known and theorized about Titanic, it is in many ways still a mystery.
‘Titanic – The Exhibition’ offers you a spectacular journey through time into the old glory days and deals with the passengers’ cruel fates. The exhibition in the Tabakfabrik Linz shows about 200 exhibits from the luxury cruiser’s wreck that were salvaged from the bottom of the sea due to a number of complex deep sea expeditions. The steel giant instantly captivates the visitors through its faithful replicas of various rooms of the ship as well as the exciting enactments of life on board. The visitor is taken back in time to the early years of the 20th century by reproductions of the café at the veranda of the A-deck or in the first and third class cabins.
‘Titanic – The Exhibition’ does not only deal with the fateful night in April 1912, when the unsinkable luxury cruiser sank after it collided with an iceberg, but also takes a look at the technical background of the ship, that’s celebrated as a ‘Miracle of Technology’, as well as the fates of the people, that didn’t survive this tragedy.
