Worcester exhibition welcomes bumper crowds to visit rare collection.
With just two-weeks to go until it sails away, this is the last chance to visit Titanic: Honour & Glory, the smash-hit exhibition which has been enjoyed by over 20,000 visitors this summer. The exhibition brings to life the history of the legendary ocean liner at Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum up until Saturday 11th September.
Titanic: Honour & Glory gathers together an unrivalled collection of genuine and rare artefacts from the Titanic and her sister ships.
From her conception to her premature demise, Titanic has become the most famous ocean liner in the world. In Titanic: Honour & Glory see a fascinating collection of rare Titanic and White Star Line artefacts in addition to magnificent props and costumes from the 1997 James Cameron film, Titanic. Discover the story of Titanic through real artefacts and personal stories, from Worcestershire, experience the grandeur of transatlantic travel and step back into the gilded age as you view awe-inspiring examples of the ship’s luxurious interior fittings.
The exhibition has been supported by an extensive range of themed events, visitors can still follow the ‘On Board the Titanic Trail’ and recreate the famous shot of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio on the deck of the ship in a specially designed selfie station.
Helen Large, Museums Audiences Manager, Museums Worcestershire said: “Despite still being in the Covid recovery period visitors have flocked to the Art Gallery & Museum to see the Titanic exhibition. We have welcomed 50% more visitors than usual over the summer period, many of them travelling from further afield to visit Worcester especially to see the exhibition. We are so pleased visitors have enjoyed Titanic: Honour and Glory, it’s been a very special exhibition.
“To make things as easy as possible, we will continue with the booking system for the mornings, meaning a quieter visit time for those who want to avoid crowds, with the afternoons remaining as drop-in sessions so hopefully there is a timing to suit everyone.”
Mornings can be booked here. There’s a £2 booking fee per ticket. Under 5s go free but they still need to be booked a place.
Afternoons from 12.30pm onwards are still drop-in.
Booking is for the whole site (except the shop), not just for Titanic. The exhibition is free and runs until 11th September. More information can be found here.
