 I’d like to share my experience at the Titanic exhibit two years ago.

My daughter Deb and I went to NYC to see the Titanic exhibit at the Discovery Times Square Expositions building. It has since closed in NYC and moved on to other cities, but you can CLICK HERE to see the exhibit promo.

As you enter the Titanic exhibit you’re given a boarding pass of an actual passenger … you find out at the end of the exhibit whether you survived or not. My third class passenger was Catherine Joseph, she was 24, married and mother of two small children. They all survived. Deb was Nora Hogarty, 18 who was sailing to America to join an order of nuns. She did not survive.

The exhibit was interesting, painstakingly put together and quite haunting.

These workmen are dwarfed by the Titanic’s giant propellers.

I live in NJ but I am a Vineyard-a-holic. I love being there, reading about it, taking pictures of it and talking about it, I also love sharing it with special people. I'm married, I have two daughters, two grandchildren and a granddog... and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. I also have a photography blog... http://throughjerseyeyes.wordpress.com/ Enjoy.
