Exhibit of Titanic Aircrafts at the Indiana State Museum


Nearly 250 artifacts salvaged from the wreckage of the Titanic are on display in a new exhibit at the Indiana State Museum.

"Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" includes passengers' personal effects, items from the ship and other artifacts.

Museum vice president of education Cheryl Mure tells The Indianapolis Star that the 7,000-square-foot exhibit will help visitors better understand the ship's doomed maiden voyage.

The Titanic sank on April 15, 1912, killing some 1,500 of the more than 2,200 passengers and crew. An international team led by oceanographer Robert Ballard located the wreckage on the North Atlantic floor about 400 miles off Newfoundland in 1985.
