"Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition"

September 22, 2010

Sept. 25-Jan. 16
Indiana State Museum

Right up there with King Tut on the list of museum-exhibitions-that-attract-people-who-don’t-normally-go-to-museums is this tour of items from the famed sunken ocean liner. While I’m no fan of the James Cameron movie (it still bugs me that she throws away the necklace rather than, say, endow a hospital), I won’t deny the pull of these objects, each carrying the echo of lives—and an era—lost. Expect crowds (even at the $17 adult ticket price). Details here.
