Titanic Honour & Glory exhibition

The Museum of Gloucester is delighted to announce that their new exhibition, Titanic Honour & Glory, will be sailing into the city on Wednesday 29 June, running until Thursday 29 September 2022.

This incredible exhibition at the Museum of Gloucester, explores the legacy of the world’s most famous ship, revealing the unforgettable story of the tragic liner. From her conception to her premature demise 110 years ago in 1912, the exhibition brings to life the history of the legendary ocean liner and includes genuine artefacts from the Titanic, her sister ships, owners the White Star Line, plus memorabilia from the 1997 James Cameron movie

About the exhibition

Voted one of the top five exhibitions in the United Kingdom by The Times, Titanic Honour & Glory gathers together an unrivalled collection of genuine and rare artefacts where highlights include:

* A selection of beautiful china dinner plates upon which the first meals were served aboard Titanic

* Personal belongings of Titanic’s passengers and crew, including a night dress which belonged to first class passenger Margaret Welles Baron Swift on board Titanic.

* A nameplate from one of Titanic’s lifeboats

* Rare examples of in-memoriam tributes, made in the aftermath of the sinking, including Titanic relief fund cheques, which were given to support the families of those who were lost at sea

* Glimpses of the liner’s sumptuous interior and the luxury passengers enjoyed aboard a White Star liner through rare examples from her sister ships, the Olympic and Britannic

* A selection of props from the film Titanic, including some of the dresses worn by Kate Winslet and the famous dazzling ‘Heart of the Ocean’ necklace...

Titanic 1997 film links

The disaster has always held a fascination for the world of TV and film where in fact the owner of the exhibition, Sean Szmalc, first became fascinated in the Titanic at the age of five when he saw the film A Night to Remember which, until James Cameron’s epic, was the most famous on-screen depiction of the disaster.

He has been amassing his awe-inspiring collection ever since which now includes memorabilia from the famous 1997 movie starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo Di Caprio in the roles which catapulted them to international stardom. Fans of the film will be excited to have the opportunity to see up close some of the costumes worn by the young leads in iconic moments from the film. The film also celebrates an anniversary this year, celebrating 25 years since it was released in December 1997.

The exhibition will also feature stories about local connections to the legendary liner and will add a moving personal resonance to the exhibition for local residents. Activities for children and families and a comprehensive events and education programme programme will also accompany this exhibition.
