The Titanic Exhibit has Sailed into The Franklin Institute

The City of Brotherly Love is known for their many museums that host fabulous exhibits and attractions. However, they change rapidly so when a new exhibit comes to town we Philadelphians need to take advantage of them! Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition has sailed in to the Franklin Institute on November 10th and will be docked until April 7th. Being that it is the 100th year anniversary of when the ships sinking, this is a very special time for the exhibit to be showcased. In case you aren’t familiar with the 1912 story of the Titanic, was thought to be the “unsinkable ship” however, on it’s very first voyage it hit an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. In all 328 bodies were found dead, many of them, however, were left to the sea. The final resting place of the epic ship is in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean at 13,000 feet. Divers have been able to recover small parts of the ship. There are 300 legendary artifacts being showcased that were collected from the ships debris field. If you want to get a sense of what life must have been like during the 1912’s and what this ship looked like in its glory days then you must visit this exhibit! I know I’ll be there. And with admission starting at eight dollars, with discounted prices for groups up to 25% off, there really is no reason to miss out on this exciting attraction.
