Ever wonder what it was like to sail the Titanic? 1,500 of the legendary ship's crew and passengers perished on April 15, 1912, when the liner hit an iceberg en route to NYC from Southhampton, England. The tale of the supposedly unsinkable mega-ship has captured the imagination of people for generations now. Well, now you can experience the ship and it's voyage right here in the city!
Head to 6th Avenue and 14th Street, a short stroll from the hotel, to check out over 200 personal artifacts from all classes of passengers, like handwritten letters, photographs, items of clothing and jewelry and even mockups of cabins and the ship's interior. (Even the necklace that inspired the Academy-Award winning film Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.)
Through the exhibition's storytelling, visitors can relive the events of that fateful day and hear stories of both the incredible heroism and devastating loss.
The exhibit is open daily and you can expect to spend an hour and a half to get the full experience. Tickets start at $39 for adults, $30 for seniors, student and military and $26 for kids.
