Titanic exhibition – ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands
The Titanic exhibition at the ArtScience Museum will be coming to an end next month. Launched in October last year, it has seen a large number of tourists and Singaporeans alike flocking to view the exhibits and relive memories of the majestic vessel, from its inception to its maiden journey and ultimately its catastrophic end.
A quick check around the office during Foxysales weekly meeting revealed that most of us had gone to the exhibition before. So we thought it would be nice share our collective experiences of the exhibition in this casual, light-hearted write up, at the same time, giving you more details of the exhibition, if you haven’t already visited it already.
At the start of the exhibition, you’ll be brought to a place with a huge image of the Titanic vessel in the background. You can have your photo taken in front of the image, so that you have a picture that looks like you were right there with the actual ship.
Moving on, the entire exhibition is broken up into eight different galleries or sections, and each member of the Foxysales team sure had fun going through the exhibits when we were there. Listing the exhibits in order below;
This gallery gives visitors a feel of how the idea of building the Titanic was initially conceived, over dinner one July evening in 1907. With its wood-planked floors and brick-coloured walls, the gallery puts you in the famed Harland and Wolff shipyards in the early 1900s, where the Titanic was built. One of the Titanic’s bollards is displayed here as well.
The Grand Staircase
The forward main staircase, with its beautiful dome of iron and glass, was the social hub of Titanic and a symbol of the ship’s elegance. It is here too that visitors can have another picture taken while they stand at the staircase. One member of the Foxysales team sure had fun posing for different photos, imagining himself to be in the actual ship itself : D
First Class Stateroom
Alex looks all ready to get some rest in the cabin with her daughter, Albane : )
Next up are the first class cabins and rooms, where one can view how the rich and famous stayed in the Titanic. A perfect replica of the corridors leads the way to the cabins, standing in the corridor feels like you’re being brought back through time.
Third Class Quarters/Hallways
Besides that, you can view a rendition of the third class cabins, with its double-bunked beds, showing the contrast between the different classes. However, it is worth noting that a third class cabin in the Titanic is as good as the second class cabins in other luxury ships during that time.
The Verandah Café is one of the Titanic’s first class cafes. Visitors can have a feel of life back then as they stroll through the recreation. And yes, there were plenty of interesting artifacts on display there, such as silver, china and various service pieces.
As the name indicates, this is where you get to see the most infamous iceberg in human history. Or at least a small replica of it. Visitors get a chance to feel the iceberg, and find out that the sea water around the frozen, solid iceberg is actually colder than the ice, because salt water has a lower freezing point!
As we approach the end of the Titanic exhibition, immerse yourself in the Discovery Gallery, where you can find out more about the discovery, recovery and conservation of the artifacts from the Titanic since the wreck was discovered on 1 September 1985.
Last but not least, end the tour at the Memorial Gallery where the names of all the passengers are listed, according to those who survived or perished in the disaster. Remember those boarding passes you received at the very start? This is where you can start searching for the name indicated on your boarding pass, and see whether ‘you’ made it or not.
With slightly over a month left before the Titanic exhibition ends, don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself and learn more about one of the most majestic ship in human history. Head on down to the Art Science Museum at Marina Bay Sands to start your journey!
