Day 2755 - The Titanic Exhibition, Sydney


Fancy a trip on the Titanic?

Getting a feel for the first class corridors

Whether you're a fan of the movie or simply a history buff, Titanic the Exhibition is a great way for you to get a feel for this doomed luxury liner.

The good news about this exhibition is you get to absorb the Titanic and walk out unscathed.




Last week the model daughter and I were in Sydney for castings so we took the opportunity to check out the Titanic Exhibition at the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park.

Housed in Byron Kennedy Hall near Fox Studios and the SCG, the Titanic Exhibition combines memorabilia from the movie with historical facts and over 300 artifacts dating over 100 years.

The exhibition shows recreations of the Titanic's luxurious interiors including the Grand Staircase seen in the movie as well as a First Class Cabin.



Our Titanic adventure began with our boarding passes which contained the personal information of an actual passenger, so that as we walked through the exhibit we were able to do so through the eyes of our alter ego.


The exhibition starts with the construction of the Titanic and takes us through the Titanic's short yet grand voyage.  From first class, to second class, down to third class we wander through the corridors taking in the history, the sights and the sounds, right up to the iceberg encounter where we actually get to touch ice under the stars at the end.









Of great excitement was finding the famous "Heart of the Ocean" necklace from the 1997 blockbuster movie.  Along with the ability to absorb some sneaky Leonardo DNA from the costumes. Shhh, no touching allowed. 


Our Titanic experience finished in the Memorial Gallery where we learned the fate of our passenger which in our case was good news.  As first class passengers the model daughter and I both survived.  Phew!

If you're interested in the Titanic at all this exhibition is a must-see.

The exhibition opened on 8 April and hasn't got an end date yet, although they are suggesting it is for "a limited time".

It runs from 10am through to 6pm (slightly later on school holidays and public holidays).

You have to buy your tickets by session as they only let a set number of people into the exhibit at a time.  I suggest you buy your tickets on line to ensure you don't miss out and turn up 20 minutes before your session is due to start to ensure you are at the front of the queue.

Are you interested in the Titanic?

Is it the movie or the history that would attract you the most?

  1. Wow, this looks amazing. I love the Titanic movie (it has extra sentimental value as it was the first movie I saw with my now husband on our very first date!) I'd love to see this exhibit.

  4. My Mum and I went to the Titanic exhibition in Singapore a few years ago and absolutely loved it. It was such a slice of history wasn't it? And such a interesting glimpse into the different stratas of society of the time.

  8. 11 years ago I did my one and only OS trip to USofA and when i was in Las Vegas one of the hotels had one of these on exhibition. It was both creepy and fascinating to be in the 'replica' by myself. Thanks for linking up for #lifethisweek 18/52 Next week: "My Mondays".

  9. I'm fascinated by all things Titanic so I think I'd love this exhibition. I love that you get to take on the identity of a passenger. I'm pleased your person had a happy ending!

  10. This looks so cool - I wonder if they will do anything like it in Brisbane. I'm not so fascinating by the Titanic as that era of history - love the clothes etc.

  12. That looks so cool! I was always told that I was related to First Officer Murdoch. I think I need to do my family tree to see if it is true!
