 Titanic sales into Peterborough museum


Lifestyle | Article

A new exhibition which tells the story of history’s most famous ship – RMS Titanic is coming to Peterborough Museum.

The exhibition, which opens on Saturday 30 June and runs until Sunday 30 September, tells the story of the Titanic and shows what life was like on board the ship. It also tells the story of the tragic events of 14 April 1912 when 1,500 people lost their lives when the ship sank on her maiden voyage.

The exhibition will feature the tragic story of the real Peterborough family, Mr and Mrs Sage and their nine children, who sailed on the ship and lost their lives on the night of the disaster.

Visitors will have the chance to see a fantastic collection of objects from the Titanic, such as a pocket watch worn by a passenger that stopped on the night and at the time of the disaster, a teddy bear carried away from the ship, and some of the exquisite china and decorations used on Titanic and her sister ships, Olympic and Britannic.

Also on display will be props from James Cameron's movie Titanic, including one of the costumes worn by actress Kate Winslet and the 'Heart of the Ocean' necklace. There will also be a collection of sets including a recreation of a third class cabin, part of the sunken wreck and the prow of the ship where visitors will be able to pose for their own photograph like those seen on the film.

Peterborough City Council’s museum visitor services and marketing manager Stuart Orme said: “This is a stunning exhibition which tells the incredible story of the Titanic.

“It features the people who sailed on her one and only voyage and the disaster that cost many of them, including a Peterborough family, their lives. I’d urge anyone to come and see this fantastic display.”

The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday 30 June and runs until Sunday 30 September. It is open from 10 am to 5 pm from Tuesday to Saturday and 12 noon to 4 pm on Sundays. Admission is free.
