A 20,000-square foot interactive museum on International Drive, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition houses the world’s only series of full-scale recreations of the famed ship’s most famous public rooms, including the famed First Class Parlor Suite and Grand Staircase.
The Underwater Room displays an 8-foot replica of the Titanic as it looks on the bottom today. In addition, the exhibit includes 200 Titanic artifacts including items from private collections that have never been displayed before.
One of the most popular-and eerie-recreations is the ship’s bow. It allows you to feel some of the Atlantic experience including some of the ocean chill on the night more than 1,500 passengers perished on the unsinkable ship.
There is a story that goes with the Titanic bow exhibit. A ghost story. All traveling Titanic exhibits have had reports of hauntings. In Orlando, the ghost seems to favor the ship’s bow. Ask your tour guide about it.
The guides are costumed actors who portray people on the ill-fated Titanic voyage, such as Capt. Smith and Molly Brown. The tours, lasting about an hour, begin on the hour starting at 10 a.m.
Not surprisingly, the exhibit includes a costume worn by Leonardo DiCaprio in the 1997 film and memorabilia from such movies as A Night to Remember starring Kenneth More and The Search for Titanic hosted by Orson Welles.
James Cameron’s 1997 movie Titanic was considered such a romantic movie that gala evening dinners are held at the exhibit many nights. Like First Class passage on the original voyage, the meal is not inexpensive. However, it’s also a dinner show featuring costumed characters and re-enactments from the Titanic’s final hours.
No service fees when admission or dinner tickets are booked online.
