Nick jumped in the shower (I made sure Amber packed some clothes for him!) while Amber and I picked up SubWay sandwiches for us. After lunch we headed out to the Titanic Exhibit at the Sloan Museum!! The exhibit was to be over the end of May but it's now extended until September 3rd!
here....really interesting. When you arrived at the entrance and show your purchased tour ticket, you are given a boarding pass to enter the exhibit!
The ship steward then welcomes by handing you a boarding pass and reading who you will be on the tour. Yep, on the back of the ticket there was a person's name and information on what class they booked their travel and some info on them. This was my boarding pass (the back of it).
At the end of the tour, you could look up your passengers name on the 'Lived' or 'Deceased' lists they had for 1st and 2nd class. My lady, Mrs. Caldwell as well as her husband and son all survived. Amber and Nick's passengers weren't so lucky! They didn't make it!
It is amazing to think of the artifacts that are on display were able to be saved and preserved for history. Jewelry...money...shoes...dishes....and even tiny vials of perfume.
Of course we had to have our picture taken with the ghost of the Titanic's Captain!
Oh, this was Nick riding one of the bikes in another area of the museum. I think he enjoyed the bike and cranking the engine of an old Model T! I wasn't quick enough to get a picture of Nick cranking the engine....Go figure!
If the Titanic exhibit comes to your area, or you live around the Flint area, do take an afternoon to visit the exhibit. It's a bit of history we won't have many opportunities to see! Oh, no pictures allowed...which was too bad...but there are enough images and information on the web!
