Our Titanic Remembered exhibition ran from 8 March to 30 September 2012

To mark the centenary of the sinking of the passenger liner Titanic in 1912, a small exhibition took place at the Museum. The Titanic has become the most famous maritime disaster in history, largely through the compelling personal stories told by survivors of the tragedy, in which over 1500 people lost their lives.

Titanic Remembered exhibition highlights

This exhibition focused on some of these stories as told to Walter Lord who featured them in the book, A Night to Remember. The book was later made into a film by producer William MacQuitty. The exhibition will display for the first time a selection of items from the Lord-MacQuitty Titanic collection which was bequeathed to the National Maritime Museum.
