Visitors to the exhibit are given a boarding pass of one of the real passengers on the Titanic, before they start the journey through the exhibit. Printed on the back of the boarding passes are the age and the itinerary details of that person. When visitors come to the end of the tour, they will discover if the original passenger survived the Titanic by searching for their name on a wall memorial.
Aside from the passenger personal effects there are also numerous replicas of the Titanic ship. The Grand staircase of the Titanic is the most impressive and popular replica. The Grand Staircase replica was recreated as closely to the original as possible, using iron and bronze and includes the stain glass dome. Another incredible replica is of the promenade deck, which includes a starry sky and the sounds of waves. It also has a replica of the iceberg that inevitably sunk the “unsinkable” ship.
