TITANIC -The Ship of dreams, the Unsinkable ship
The Ship's Captain: Captain Edward J. Smith
705 passengers survived, but 1,523 were lost.
Even if all 20 lifeboats had been filled to capacity, there would have only have been room in them for 1,178 people.
The Titanic was the largest moving object of its time.
It cost $7.5 million to build Titanic and carried a $5 million insurance policy. It would have cost about $400 million to build the ship today.
More than 10,000 men worked on the Titanic for nearly three years to construct the hull and internal structure.
More than 100,000 people gathered to watch the Titanic sail off to New York.
For a third-class passenger, a ticket was $40 ($770 today). For a first-class passenger, tickets were $4,500 a piece ($90,000 today).
It took about 60 pounds of coal for the ship to move 60 feet.
|Admission ticket price is $28.00/person|
The exhibit was very detailed. This review would take you to my experience.
|The replica of Titanic's Boarding Pass|
Before entering the exhibit, we were given a "boarding pass" with the name of the passenger and at the end of the exhibit we would find out if that passenger had survived or not. I kept my boarding pass and I asked hubby's and Clint's so that I could post them here since cameras and celphones are not allowed inside.
Anyway, below are the boarding passes that hubby's, Clint's and I got. Let's check the names if they survived or lost.
