An exhibition of artefacts from the Titanic are to go on display in Sydney.
The centenary of the sinking of the Titanic is to be marked in Sydney later this month with a dedicated exhibition.
The Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour is to host Remembering Titanic, which will open on March 29th.
National Maritime Museum communications manager Shirani Aththas explained the exhibition would tell some of the lesser-known stories from the fateful voyage.
“We tell the stories of many people – from the junior wireless operator, Harold Sydney Bride, through to the passengers on board, including two little boys known as the Titanic orphans.”
As well as displaying artefacts from the ship, the showcase will also look at the impact the event had on popular culture and will feature costumes from the 1997 Titanic film, staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
As well as the Titanic exhibition, the National Maritime Museum is also currently hosting a display of the watercraft used by the indigenous people of Australia until June 11th.
