Big Picture

Visitors to Carnegie Science Center can be transported back 112 years to one of the world’s most famous shipwrecks through TITANIC: The Artifact Exhibition. This immersive exhibition, which concludes April 15, tells the poignant stories of passengers and crew, features artifacts recovered from the shipwreck, and even includes an “iceberg” that visitors can touch to get a sense of the frigid conditions that survivors faced.
