Titanic exhibit

I've never been to a Titanic exhibit.

I learned earlier this week that beginning today at Moody Gardens in Galveston, there will be an exhibit on the Titanic. Patrons will receive a mock boarding pass to help recreate the feel of boarding the ship in 1912. Each boarding pass will have the name of an actual passenger on board at the time of its sailing. The journey is presented chronologically, from construction, to life on board, to the final demise and the artifact recovery. Visitors will view authentically recreated rooms, touch an iceberg, and hear stories of the passengers themselves. I am looking forward to being able to visit this exhibit. It will be brought to the Gardens by RMS Titanic, the only company permitted by law to recover items from the wreckage.

That I'd like to see.
