Displaying items by tag: Cultra
Relics from the Titanic will get their first public airing at an exhibition in Co Down this month.
The Newsletter reports that the new display at Cultra's Folk and Transport Museum - which will be opened on 31 May - comprises 35 items from the doomed ship, including part of the hull, silver and glassware and a number of personal items.
"Nothing tells the story of Titanic more poignantly and dramatically than these artifacts," said Alexandra Klingelhofer of RMS Titanic Ltd, which has loaned the items to the museum.
The new exhibition marks 100 years since the launch of the Titanic from the Harland and Wolff shipyards in Belfast.
