The tragedy of the Titanic is chillingly present in the details: that the sea was calm and the night moonless; that the orchestra played "Songe d'Automne" as the icy water rose.

Drawn from the archives of the Titanic Historical Society, The Titanic Collection uses real documents authentically reproduced to paint a riveting portrait of life on board this magnificent ship.

Reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century steamer trunk, this deluxe box contains more than 18 items, including:

  • boarding pass of a man who missed the sailing
  • brochure reviewing the amenities and civilities of the first class
  • deck maps
  • luggage stickers
  • postcards sent from the ship
  • replicas of three tragic telegrams: the warning of icebergs ahead, the Titanic's distress call, and the heartrending announcement of the disaster

The Titanic Collection also includes a fact-filled booklet and timeline. Few will want to resist a closer look at the utterly compelling items in The Titanic Collection.

The Titanic momentos are housed in a hinged box containing a booklet that explains the reproductions included from that fateful voyage of 1912. Includes replicas and copies of Titanic memorabilia, mementos, notes, menus, maps, and more!
