TITANIC: The Artefact Exhibition must go on!

Victorians have fallen head over heels for the enduring story of Titanic. Due to a sold-out run so far, Melbourne Museum is thrilled to announce the global blockbuster exhibition TITANIC: The Artefact Exhibition will sail on with an extended season now showing until 21 April 2024.

Since its grand opening, TITANIC: The Artefact Exhibition has welcomed more than 30 million visitors worldwide, offering an extraordinary glimpse into the tragic tale of the ill-fated luxury steamship. Featuring over 200 authentic artefacts recovered from the depths of the North Atlantic, the exhibition provides a moving and intimate exploration of the personal stories of passengers and crew who embarked on a journey on April 10, 1912, only to meet a devastating fate.

‘The response from visitors to TITANIC: The Artefact Exhibition at Melbourne Museum has been nothing short of extraordinary and it’s heartening to see how these true stories of tragedy, heroism, love, and loss continue to resonate globally. We take pride in offering our Melbourne Museum audiences not just a chance to witness, but to profoundly experience this momentous event. The exhibition allows visitors to connect deeply with the real-life characters from history, making it a truly unparalleled and moving experience.’
Lynley Crosswell, Museums Victoria CEO & Director

The artefacts themselves read like a script from a Hollywood blockbuster – an unopened bottle of champagne with a 1900 vintage, luggage, china, a filigree ring with diamonds, and a window frame from the Verandah Café. All honourably recovered from four kilometres below the surface of the North Atlantic by RMS Titanic, Inc., the only company authorised to recover artefacts from the site.

Due to the overwhelming response, Melbourne Museum has extended the exhibition until 21 April 2024. Whether you’re a history enthusiast, a Titanic aficionado, or simply looking for a must-see experience, TITANIC: The Artefact Exhibition promises to intrigue and educate visitors of all ages.

Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to delve into history and witness the stories of those who sailed aboard the Titanic. Visit Melbourne Museum and immerse yourself in the gripping legacy of TITANIC: The Artefact Exhibition.
