DEARBORN, Michigan – Don’t miss your last chance to board Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at The Henry Ford before it sets sail on September 30. Guests looking to visit the Exhibition either for the first, or one last time, will have the opportunity to do so during special extended hours (this week) from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m, until September 30th at Henry Ford Museum.
The 10,000 square-foot exhibition features more than 300 artifacts – 250 of which have never been displayed in Michigan. Guests seeing the Exhibit for the first time will be quickly taken back in time to 1912 as they walk through extensive room re-creations, get their photos taken near the full-scale replica of the Grand Staircase and learn about passengers on board who had local ties to Michigan.
As visitors board the newly redesigned and expanded exhibition they will receive a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger aboard Titanic. They then begin their chronological journey and “travel” through the life of the Titanic—from the ship’s construction, to its on-board passengers, its ill-fated voyage and the amazing artifact rescue efforts that involved divers returning to it in recent years.
Special timed tickets for members are $10. Non-member ticket prices include admission to the museum and are $27 for adults (13-61), $22.50 for youth (5-12), $25 for seniors (62+) and children 4 and under are free. For more information, call 313-982-6001 or visit www.thehenryford.org/titanic.
