It’s a great weekend to explore two great stories at one great place.
Saturday is opening day for Titanic: An Artifact Exhibition at Henry Ford Museum. Tickets are for timed entrances beginning as early as 9:30 a.m. This 10,000 square foot exhibition features more than 300 artifacts, complete room recreations as well as a replica of the ship’s grand staircase.
Moving through this exhibition, visitors will be taken back in time to 1912 and travel through the life of the Titanic – from the ship’s construction, to its on-board passengers, its ill-fated voyage and the amazing artifact rescue efforts that involved divers returning to the sunken ship in recent years.
Check out the website for more information on ticket prices and available entry times.
The film has a start time every hour in The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre throughout the days Saturday and Sunday beginning at 10 and 11:05 a.m.; 12:10, 1:15, 2:20, 3:25, 4:30, 5:35 and 6:40 p.m.
While you’re here, be sure to make the rounds through the museum and spend some time enjoying the story that Driving America tells. Check out the interactive kiosks, explore the Driving America Timeline, take a lunch break at Lamy’s Diner and then sit back and relax while you watch the short film in the Drive-in Theater.
Oh, and be sure to take a look at our newest artifact in Driving America.
