Titanic Artifacts Coming To Kansas

KSCB News - November 29, 2011 8:05 am

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.
