Titanic exhibit opens in ABQ Saturday

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Starting Saturday, artifacts from the “unsinkable” Titanic that struck an iceberg and sank on April 15, 1912, will be on display at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in Albuquerque, KOB-TV reported.

The exhibit will feature six rooms filled with relics recovered from the sunken luxury liner — artifacts that exhibit organizers hope will tell the personal stories of some of the 2,200 passengers who were aboard, Eyewitness News 4 said.

“There’s only been 5,000 artifacts taken from the ocean floor, and 125 of those are here in Albuquerque,” museum executive director Charles Walter told KOB-TV.

The Titanic Artifact Exhibition runs through October, according to KOB-TV.

For an extensive preview of the exhibit, go to the Albuquerque Journal article titled “Titanic artifacts will be on display in N.M.” that appeared in February.

The exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, March 23 through Oct. 27.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $11 for children, $15 for seniors and museum members will pay $6, the Journal reported. For tickets go to www.nmnaturalhistory.org.
