Jewels Of The Titanic Exhibit

As you know, us ladies here at On The Go LOVE things that are shiny and blingy!!!! So when one of our most favorite venues The Titanic Experience announced that they had a Jewels of the Titanic Exhibit coming to town, we KNEW we had to go!

Jewels of the Titanic

Premier Exhibitions Inc is doing a three-city tour that started in Atlanta, Ga and ends in Las Vegas, NV running until May 31, 2013. It is here in Orlando from January 11- March 12. The collection bodes 15 of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry that were actually found on one of the first dives to the Titanic site. Diamonds, Sapphires, pearls and gold pieces that actually belonged to one of Titanic’s wealthiest passengers.

Jewels of the Titanic

When guest boarded Titanic, they sent many of their most valuable items (Jewels, Money, Books, Paintings) to the Purser’s office which would hold all the expensive items in one place. They received claim receipts for pick up when Titanic would dock. It was explained to us by Mark Lach, who is the Titanic: the Artifacts Exhibition Creative Director that the guest who had valuables in The Purser’s office, once Titanic hit the ice berg, immediately went to retrieve their items and they were put into leather Gladstone bag, which were locked into safes and moved out to the lifeboats with the passengers.

Nobody is quite sure of the events after that but many pieces of the jewelry sank with the ship and are on display today. in 1987 when the team recovered a Gladstone bag from the wreckage site it contained, jewelry, bank notes, gold sovereigns and gold watches! Because the Gladstone bags were handmade, the chemicals that were used in the tanning process of the leather SAVED the currency notes and protected the rest of the belongings.

Also, just an FYI, the INFAMOUS Heart of the Ocean that was features in James Cameron’s Titanic, was fictional and never actually on board Titanic. But they do sell a replica at Titanic The Exhibit if you should feel the need to reenact any moment of the movie.

Thank you to Krystin of ThisIsPress.com for inviting us and as always, treating us like Royalty!

Jewels of Titanic Sails to Orlando in January

PREMIER EXHIBITIONS, INC. ANNOUNCES NEW TRAVELING EXHIBIT, JEWELS OF TITANIC, SET TO SHINE FOR A LIMITED TIME IN ATLANTA, ORLANDO AND LAS VEGAS

 

Collection of Titanic’s Priceless Jewels on Display at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and

Titanic The Experience

Orlando, Fla., Nov. 27, 2012 – Fifteen of the most prestigious artifacts recovered from the wreck site of Titanic have been gathered into one of the most dazzling collections ever assembled and will go on display November 16th. As part of a three-city tour, Jewels of Titanic, presented by Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and Titanic The Experience, features diamonds, sapphires, pearls and gold jewelry that once belonged to some of Titanic’s wealthiest passengers. Debuting in Atlanta with future engagements in Orlando and Las Vegas, Jewels of Titanic shares the story of the jewelry’s discovery, underwater recovery, mysterious lineage and the influence these artifacts have in today’s pop culture.

For more than 100 years, the mystique of R.M.S. Titanic’s sailing and subsequent sinking has captured the world’s imagination. Hailed as the most luxurious ocean liner the world had ever seen, Titanic’s manifest for the doomed maiden voyage had some of wealthiest and most well-known individuals of the day. As the Ship sank beneath the icy waters of the North Atlantic, she claimed more than 1,500 lives and took all the treasures she carried on board to a watery grave 2.5 miles beneath the ocean surface.

These priceless items were once thought to be lost forever. However, 75 years after the sinking, Premier Exhibitions, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary, RMS Titanic, Inc., the salvor-in-possession of the wreck site and producers of the remarkable Titanic exhibitions, embarked on the first recovery operation to Titanic. Among the twisted steel, murky water and unidentifiable objects was an unmarked leather Gladstone bag whose contents became some of the most remarkable artifacts ever recovered – the Jewels of Titanic.

Titanic The Experience Ghost Tour

Titanic The Experience
7324 International Drive * Orlando Florida 32819

When Shelley and I got invited to go back to Titanic the Experience and take part in one of their new Ghost tours we JUMPED at the chance. We had such an amazing time on the first tour that we knew we wanted to go back for another experience and we of course had to drag Shalon with us.

Titanic the Experience
Titanic The Experience

The Ghost Tour is different from the Experience Tour because while you go through the rooms and learn the history of the artifacts, the guides Joe Zimmer and Jac LeDoux delve a bit more into the folk lore of the pieces. The word of mouth rumors about premonitions and deaths that happened prior and things of that nature. They also talked about experiences that the guides themselves have had while working there. Before Titanic got their remodel they were housed over on the other side of International Drive in an area called The Mercado which has since been tore down. The Mercado was a very old set of buildings that was turned into shopping and dining and entertainment area. It has since been torn down but the guides all have memories and experiences to share.

Titanic The Experience
In this room the chain on the wall definitely was moving as we were told about the odd incidents that have happened in Titanic The Experience.

So much of the Ghost Tour is a personal experience.You still get the boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger but this time the stories they tell about the people have a much more superstitious feel to them then the regular tour.  It is all about how you feel when you look at the artifacts and if you feel as though there is a presence around you. We were told about a young girl named Katie who was one of the resident spirits in the exhibit. She likes to move artifacts and play around with the Tour Guides. And they also like to play with her. She has a doll that has been found all over the tour rooms and exhibit. She has been known to move mirrors and small items as such. Some of the guides will not play with her but some of them have just as much fun as they can with it. Hiding her doll in tall or obscure places, taunting her with toys and food and even asking her to move things for them to see if she will do it. It is a well known fact that she will play along with certain tour guides but not all of them.

Titanic The Experience
The recreation of the boiler room of the Titanic was super creepy, especially the speaking tube!

While we were on our tour, we were lucky enough to have some Paranormal Experts with us experiencing the exhibit. One of them had a meter of sorts that read magnetic activity and when we were in certain rooms it would be going crazy and all the lights would be blowing up. One of the guides took a group of us back to the telegraph room and that is where they decided to try and talk to the spirits. Asking yes or no questions to the spirits green on the meter meaning yes and red on the meter meaning no. While I totally am a believer in spirits, I totally understand people who aren’t. Seeing the meter respond and feeling the chill in the air in spots and seeing artifacts that were enclosed in cases or units move, totally blew my mind. This isn’t magic, this isn’t a 3 cent show. This is the type of thing that really gets you to thinking and believing.

Titanic The Experience
Did you make it?

Titanic was a real event. With real people and real emotions. Seeing and hearing the stories and watching how the tour guides react totally make this a one of a kind experience. Seeing the other people on the tour react is another aspect of this tour.

A Night on The Titanic: A Visit to Titanic the Experience

When Titanic the movie came out, I was a senior in High School and I saw it no less then 10 times in the theaters. No Lie. I own both the VHS Tapes (it’s a 2 set) and the DVD. I, like most teenage girls LOVED Leonardo DiCaprio…. Oh how I loved him with his floppy hair and crinkly eyes… and the way he laughed…. Oh and when he was on growing pains… or in the movie when he was drawing Rose……… oh Leo…..

sorry…. i got off track…

whew

ANYWAY when the Thelma to my Louise Shelley asked me to go with her to the Titanic the Experience Exhibit on International Drive the other night I JUMPED at the chance.

Titanic The Experience

When you visit their website it tells you that : “Redesigned in January 2012 by RMS Titanic, Inc., Titanic The Experience is a blockbuster Orlando attraction located on 7324 International Drive near Universal Studios, Sea World and Walt Disney World. Become a passenger and travel back in time to 100 years ago, where authentic artifacts and interactive storytellers in period costume allow you to visit the unforgettable sights, sounds, and emotions of most famous Ship ever to set sail, Titanic.

This 17 gallery tour includes full scale room re-creations where you visit Titanic’s Grand Staircase, First Class Parlor Suite, Boilers, Captain’s Bridge and Promenade Deck offering a haunting, emotional connection to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.

In addition, you will now view more than 400 unique pieces of memorabilia and 100 artifacts recovered from the wreck site of Titanic- 21 of which have recently completed conservation and are on display for the first time. These celebrated pieces include a 3-ton portion of the Ship’s hull, the Captain’s wheel and personal belongings from Titanic’s passengers and crew.

The story of the sinking is legendary; now experience the wonder and tragedy of this ill-fated Ship on a journey through Titanic history at Titanic The Experience.”

 

So Shelley and I dressed in our finest fancy wear and headed off to board The Titanic. When you enter the front of this International Drive buliding you are treated to movie memorabilia and actualy pieces of Titanic findings. They have merged the movie world together with the real event very nicely. You can even take the FAMOUS picture on the bow of the boat (HOLD ME LEO)!  You also recieve a Boarding Pass with a name and a story on it when you walk in. You can not board Titanic otherwise 🙂 The Boarding Pass has a real name and real story about someone who actually sailed Titanic. It brings the whole experience that much more together in my personal opinion.

Titanic the Experience Boarding Pass – Aurora
Titanic the Experience Boarding Pass – Shelley

You then meet your Tour Guide who is a passenger along with you on The Titanic. Harry Elkins Widener was our guide. His Father owned the company that built the Titanic! Henry and his parents were going to be sailing on The Titanic with Henry’s EXTENSIVE book collection. He was a book collector and LOVED his first editions. Henry is our guide through the whole experience. He tours us through the

  • 17 gallery, 20,000 sq ft Interactive Museum
  • Over 100 newly added artifacts recovered from the wreck site of Titanic
  • “Little Big Piece,” 3-ton section of the Ship’s hull and the second largest piece of Titanicever recovered
  • Full Scale recreations of her Grand Staircase, First Class Cabin, Verandah Cafe and more

This was one of the most POWERFUL Walking tours I have been on. The artifacts speak and the way that our guide told the story of them all was amazing. I felt as though in some portions I was there. I don’t want to spoil the experience and tell you everything you will see but I will say that as an overly emotional girl, this was breathtaking.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-jCZVPHpts

While we only had one tour guide, it is often the chance that you will run into other people on the tour. Molly Brown (The Unsinkable) and Captain Smith being two of the most popular. These actors take their roles VERY seriously and spend many hours researching nuances and mannerisms  of these well known Titanic figures.

Come to find out,  Harry Widener, the role that our tour guide was portraying,  did not make it off The Titanic. His Mother Elanor did and she donated his entire book collection to Harvard University where it still is to this day. The Library on Campus is named The Harry Elkins Widener Library and was built in his memory thanks to his Mother’s very generous donation of 3.5 million dollars on June 24, 1915.

I was thoroughly impressed with this experience. I would do it again in a heart beat. I know there were artifacts that I missed and I would LOVE to be able to experience the other actors. Titanic The Experience also offers a Dinner Event where you get treated to a 3 course meal and celebrate the Legendary retirement of Captain E.J. Smith. You dine with Titanic’s most notable passengers and there is also a re-enactment of the night of April 14th,1912. They also do a Titanic Ghost Tour every Thursday. Some of the staff members have encountered strange events within the exhibition swearing that it is maybe passengers and crew members of The Titanic….. Or is it? (cue creepy music)

The Cost for Titanic The Experience is by far one of the best Deals in Orlando. at $21.95 per person you can not beat that at all. The Dinner Show is $64.95 per person and that includes a 3 course meal with the exhibit. The Ghost Tour every Thursday is $32.00

But get THIS! If you mention the word BLOG when you walk into the Titanic Experience you will receive a 20% off Discount!!! WAHOOOOOOO!!!

Thank you to the Ladies and Gentlemen at Titanic the Experience and to the Ladies at Tango Marketing for hosting us! Y’all have made me fall in love with Titanic all over again!
