Titanic Exhibition

At first I didn't think I wanted to go to this as it was quite pricey but our Dept Social Committee arranged for a group discount and last minute I joined in.  All I can say is I was very glad I did even if some of the times the story did upset me - knowing it was an actual life and death experience for many - not fictional.  One thing I can recommend if you are a slow reader like I am, is to pay for the audio equipment as I was in the last group to leave and I didn't READ all the notecards, but did read all the wallboards.  In the beginning you could get your picture taken and then at the end there were a few different scenes where they photoshopped you into the scene.  I picked two and bought them - that was the cheapest part of the tour.

See the ghosted image of the Captain?

Sorry but I still won't watch the movie - seeing snippets is enough for my exciteable innards!  LOL!
