110 years ago, the world was shook as the largest and grandest ocean liner of its day sank on its maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg. Capturing the imagination of millions for over a century, get an inside look at R.M.S. Titanic as never seen before. Painstakingly recreated in a digital format by the “Titanic Honor and Glory” group, you will get to see the opulent and lavishly appointed rooms and spaces of First and Second class, as well as a look into 3rd class and crew accommodations. Reconstructed down to the screws and light switches, walk the decks of the doomed liner, just as she was in 1912.
