In this stunning exhibition Titanic: Honour & Glory, see unique artefacts from one of the largest collections of rare Titanic and White Star Line artefacts in the world, in addition to magnificent props and costumes from the 1997 James Cameron film, Titanic.

Voted one of the top five exhibitions in the United Kingdom by The Times, Titanic: Honour & Glory will explore her story, and those of her sister ships and their owners, the White Star Line, as well as revealing the local links of some of its passengers.
Titanic: Honour & Glory gathers together an unrivalled collection of genuine and rare artefacts from the Titanic and her sister ships.
