We visit the fascinating Titanic exhibition and learnt about its connection to Bristol

The exhibition includes a section on the Bristolians aboard the Titanic.

Located at the Paintworks Event Space until February 25, the Titanic Exhibition offers an incredible insight into life aboard the Titanic.

The exhibition is divided into two sections: the first half explores the making of the Titanic, its short voyage and aftermath and the second section looks into the expeditions to the wreck site.

Visitors will be able to see items and read stories about first, second and third class passengers from both ships, as well as discover items such as silverware and chinaware, a photographic collection from on-board passenger and survivor, Father Browne, plus many more of the Titanic’s interior and exterior artefacts that have been recovered from the wreckage site.

Some of the costumes and props from the 1997 film Titanic also form part of the display.

The exhibition also has a section on the Bristolian passengers aboard the Titanic and what happened to them after the vessel sank.

The exhibition is open from 10am to 7pm on weekends and half term, and from 10am to 5pm otherwise, in 1 hour bookable slots. Tickets are free for 0 to 5-year-olds, £7 and £13 on weekdays for 6 to 14-year-olds and ages 15 and over, and £9 and £15 on weekends for 6 to 14-year-olds and ages 15 and over and can be booked here.
