Exploring twenty dramatically lit galleries, guests will touch a growing iceberg, experience 28-degree water, sit in an actual size lifeboat, see the only actual TITANIC photos that exist on display, play our 1900's Grand Piano, look inside a grand first-class stateroom similar to the ones the Astor's shared, see a third-class cabin, take the Wheel on the Captain's Bridge, see highlights of the owner, John Joslyn's dive in the Discovery Gallery, and walk our replica Grand Staircase.

The Grand Staircase, built from the ship's blueprints, replicated accurately and full-scale in the museum was the perfect mesh of art, form, and function. Woodworkers and ironworkers recreated with accurate detail the exquisite oak wood carvings and wrought-iron balustrades.
