RMS Titanic

2012 marks the 100th anniversay of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, the famous passenger liner that sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean on the night of April 14, 1912, after hitting an iceberg on her maiden voyage from England to New York. More than 1,500 people lost their lives in the wreck, one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. The wreckage of the ship was discovered in 1985, and thousands of artifacts have since been removed and put on display. To commemorate the century since the sinking of RMS Titanic, exhibits from Liverpool, England, and Las Vegas, Nevada, to Singapore and Saskatchewan showcase everything from letters, photographs and objects to a piece of the "ship of dreams" herself.
