New York, NY, USA (March 20, 2012) /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — On April 10, 2012, the one hundredth anniversary of RMS Titanic’s launch on her maiden – and only – voyage, the South Street Seaport Museum will open “Titanic,” an exhibition that examines both the disaster and a century’s worth of fascination with the ship’s dramatic story.

The exhibition will feature original historic objects and documents from Titanic and her passengers, as well as interactive elements and artifacts that show how the event has been remembered and interpreted in popular culture, including production items ranging from the 1953 film Titanic starring Barbara Stanwyck through to the most current interpretation, the upcoming four-part ABC miniseries, Titanic, written by Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park ) scheduled to air April 14 and 15, 2012.

The “Titanic” exhibition is designed by Cooper Joseph Studio.

Since 1967, the South Street Seaport Museum has presented exhibitions that tell the stories of the Seaport past, present, and future. Recently reopened under the management of the Museum of the City of New York, the Museum is currently presenting a lively interweaving of the city and the sea through photography, video, historic artifacts, and contemporary design. The Museum is open Wednesday – Sunday from 10-6. Admission is $5 (free for children under 9).
