Titanic Exhibit

On Thursday two weeks ago, we went to the Louisville Science Center to see an artifact exhibit on the Titanic. There were plates from a cupboard that had rotted away in the ocean. Then we saw perfume bottles which you could still smell the perfume. You could see egg cups that did not break.

They also had recreations of third class rooms and an iceberg which was made of real ice! A museum guide told stories about people on the Titanic. John Jacob Astor IV was the richest passenger on the voyage. He let the dogs out of their kennels so that they could survive. It was a great exhibit!

Hi Malcolm,
There were 4 people who were booked to trvel on the Titanic who have a connection to the town I live in. I believe the story goes like this ... Mr Proctor was building a vaudeville theatre here (www.proctors.org ) and there was a delay in the opening so they decided to travel at a later date.
