Seems there’s a lot going on these days at Atlantic Station and this weekend is no different.
Friday, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition opened at the Atlantic Station Premier Exhibition Center, and Saturday, the Easter bunny is paying a visit to the mixed-use development for "Hop in the Park."
Atlanta is one of just eight cities to host the Titanic exhibit that pays tribute to the world’s largest and most iconic ship during the 100-year anniversary of its sinking. Of course, the Easter bunny makes his rounds all over, but he’ll be hopping into Central Park Saturday for a family-friendly Easter event hosted by Atlantic Station, Midtown Bridge, and Radio Disney.
From 1 to 4 p.m. there will be a lot of fun games, activities, face painting, pictures with the Easter bunny and much more. See here for more details.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition features more than 200 artifacts, with almost half of them making their debut in Atlanta. April 15 will mark the 100th anniversary of the ship's sinking in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean after colliding with an iceberg.
The exhibition will unveil new findings that help piece together untold stories of Titanic’s passengers and crew, which were once thought to be lost with great ocean liner.
Highlights of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition Atlanta include:
- 212 artifacts recovered from eight research and recovery expeditions to Titanic’s wreck site
- 100 recently conserved artifacts to make their debut in Atlanta, never having been seen before
- Featuring the D-Deck door, a massive steel door originally mounted in the side of Titanic’s hull that was, in effect, the “front door” for first class passengers
- Discover untold stories of Titanic’s passengers and crew- unveiled for the first time anywhere
- A gallery devoted to local connections to where visitors can learn how the sinking of the great ship resonated here in Georgia
- Experience historically accurate room recreations including a simulated iceberg chilled to 28 degrees, allowing visitors to feel the temperature of the North Atlantic the night Titanic sank
- View the latest video from the wreck site and understand how Titanic rest today
Upon entering Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, visitors will be drawn back in time to April 1912, when the ship embarked on its maiden voyage. They’ll receive replica boarding pass, assume the role a passenger and follow a chronological journey through life on Titanic – from the ship’s construction to life on board, the famous sinking, and the modern day efforts to recover and conserve the wreckage for future generations.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will replace Dialog in the Dark, which has successfully appeared for more than three years at the Exhibition Center. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will be featured alongside BODIES…The Exhibition.
