TITANIC EXHIBITION

Reveal the secret of Titanic and experience the atmosphere of the 20th century! The story of this „unsincable ship“ has been told many times, but never more poignantly and passionately than by the artifacts presented in this exhibition that has been displayed in many countries worldwide. And you have now a chance to visit it in Bratislava’s Incheba – until 16th January.

EXHIBITION DETAILS

This global exhibition is organized by the company called RMS Titanic – which has exclusive rights for gathering relics from the Titanic wreck. It was extended with documents provided by the Slovak National Museum. By paying a visit here, you will be able to see hundreds of original artifacts saved from the famous wreck that tell the story of the great ship as well as the 2 228 passengers and crew whose lives were changed forever.

At the entrance you will be asked to leave your belongings in the cloakroom (so wear just a small bag, otherwise you won’t be allowed to take it with you). You will receive an audio-guide headset which will enable you to listen to the detailed explanation of each exhibited object in Slovak, English or German language – very useful! You’ll also get a boarding pass with a name of a real Titanic’s passenger that was aboard during the disaster – and at the end of the exhibition, you can look for the passenger’s name on a big board to find out whether he/she survived or not.
