Permission granted to come Aboard.... Titanic Exhibit at The Henry Ford

While you are waiting to go aboard the Titanic, you read about the "passenger" you are to be for the voyage (next picture). And no, you don't get to take pictures once you are aboard (also no cell phones, etc.)...
When you first enter, it's like euphoria....the excitement, the luxury, seeing the first class staterooms, reading the menus and seeing the dishes and artifacts.

Then as you progress, it becomes more serious at every turn, the lighting changes, the sounds change and by the time you are at the end, it is very sobering. You have read the quotes by the passengers all through the exhibit and it's like they have become real people to you. At the end there is a wall with the list of passengers , those who survived and those who died and you look to see where your "name" is on the list.

Jeff pointed out that there were as many crew members as passengers and those below, of course, suffered the greatest loss.


Of course, we had to have our picture made on the Grand Staircase, I insisted. Even though we were not dressed for dinner with the Captain.

We saw that exhibit in Branson, MO a few years ago. Very sobering. I have yet to go on a cruise. It's on my 'Bucket List.'

Great post.....
