AN EXHIBITION which allows you to see some of the rarest and largest Titanic collections is coming to Worcester later this month.

The event is currently scheduled for May 17, when museums are allowed to open, and will run until 11 September.

Titanic: Honour & Glory exhibition will feature unique items from one of the largest collections of rare Titanic and White Star Line artefacts in the world.

Fans of the 1997 movie will also be in their element as the exhibition will feature props and costumes from the 1997 James Cameron film.

The exhibition will give you a chance to learn more about the history of the ship, as well as stories you might not have heard about before.

Sean Szmalc is the director of the exhibitions group which provides award winning and high quality exhibitions to museums, galleries and clients throughout the world.

He said: “The exhibition appeals to a really wide range of audiences, from children to senior citizens.”

A nightgown belonging to Margaret Wells Baron Smith is just one of the rare artefacts on the exhibition- it was a nightgown that she was wearing as she left the sinking ship.

Another haunting item on display is a pocket watch that stopped at the moment the Titanic sunk.

Mr Szmalc said: “It really features stories of survival- while also featuring artefacts from the Titanic movie and the Titanic’s sister ship, the RMS Olympic."

The exhibition will also take a closer look at Worcestershire’s link to the Titanic and the local stories that have surfaced in recent years.

It will take a look at the story of Ellen Mary Walker who was conceived on the ship and the tragic love story surrounding her parents.

As well as the exhibition itself, the museum will be hosting numerous events throughout the month that you can fully immerse yourself in.
