Titanic Artifacts Coming To Kansas

Kansas City’s Union Station is bringing
back its most popular exhibit.
"Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" will open March 10.
The display will be a larger version of the traveling exhibit that was
in Kansas City a decade ago.
That earlier exhibit still holds the station’s record for the
largest attendance, with more than 280,000 visitors.
The timing of the exhibit will coincide with the 100th
anniversary of the ocean liner’s sinking. The vessel was on its
maiden voyage in April 1912 when it hit an iceberg in the North
Atlantic. More than 1,500 people died.
Union Station officials say the exhibit is worth seeing again.
The salvage company has returned to the wreckage since 2001 and
more objects will be displayed this time.
