One Hulluva Artifact
While I ran errands in the fog today, crews hoisted a 15-ton section of the Titanic hull onto the roof of the Metreon for an exhibition on the fourth floor opening up June 10th. While the hull is the prized artifact, there are 299 other artifacts from the wreckage and a recreation of the Grand Staircase.
I personally think an exhibition of the demise of the Titanic is so *done*, and we should just let it go and let those who perished or suffered rest in peace, but leave it to concert promoters and the Metreon to squeeze a few more bucks out of it.
“Hear the stories of passengers and crew through our compelling audio tour, available as you enter the exhibition. Touch the simulated iceberg wall to feel just how cold the water was on that fateful night. Come learn how the city of San Francisco reacted to the tragedy, and which of its citizens were aboard when the ship set sail. Whether it’s the historical significance, the science and technology, the art and fashion or the desire to learn more about Titanic and its passengers, this is an experience not to be missed.”
There sure is a lack of info on the exhibition website, nothing can be more annoying than “Coming Soon”.
