A Titanic exhibition is coming to Paris, and visitors staying at the Hôtel Louvre Marsollier will have a chance to see it from June 1 to September 15, 2013. This worldwide exhibit will be making a stop in Paris in order to show visitors the cabins of the most famous ship in all of history. The unique and tragic story of the Titanic has been a source of great interest for many since it sunk. Now, anyone who is curious about the vessel and its passengers can learn more right in the City of Light.
The exhibition will take place at the Parc des Expositions de Versailles, an expo center in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. A short metro ride will lead visitors to this venue, where they can discover a replica of the cabins of the Titanic, considered to be the “unsinkable ship” before its unfortunate maiden voyage.
More than 280 relics from the real ship will be on display during the Titanic exhibition. These objects are accompanied by historical commentaries as well as stories from passengers. This information sheds light on some of the mysteries of the unsinkable ship and also gives a personal touch to the collection of objects on display.
The replicas of the actual cabins of the Titanic provide an opportunity to experience what it was like to be a passenger on the Titanic. This is something that 25 million visitors have already experienced in the past 18 years that this exhibition has been in existence. From London to Los Angeles to Chicago, the international exhibit has been to some of the biggest cities in the world.
Now, it is time for visitors and inhabitants of Paris to step back in history and see the construction, inauguration, departure, voyage and sinking of the Titanic. This incredible journey is part of a collective culture that has transgressed national borders and is now part of a shared world history.
