After a successful Gauteng leg, the Titanic Exhibition is finally in the Mother City. Catch this slice of history at the Watershed at the V&A Waterfront until March 2016.
Educational, emotional, and appropriate for all ages, Titanic: The Artefact Exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the life of Titanic, paying homage to the indomitable force of the human spirit in the face of tragedy.
With a number of historic artefacts that have been recovered from the wreckage on display, none of them hit closer to home then the gold pocket watch that belonged to one of the passengers, Thomas William Solomon Brown, a Cape Town native. Thomas was a successful hotelier who decided to relocate to Seattle where his sister-in-law lived to pursue other business ventures. He was travelling with his family in second class, when tragedy struck. His wife and daughter were rescued, but Thomas died on the sinking ship and his body was never recovered. “We just want people to come to the exhibition and experience the beauty and emotion these artefacts carry, and we have gone to great lengths to insure that the audience feels like they are in the Titanic, “says Nick Dreyer, COO of Expo RSA, the people responsible for the exhibit.
