14 April 1912, just minutes before midnight. The Titanic, with more than 2,200 people on board, is about to hit an iceberg. No one could have predicted the impending tragedy on a ship that boasted of being “unsinkable”. The Titanic, which became legendary for its dimensions (270 metres long and 53 metres high), but also for its capacity to reach great speeds and, above all, its fateful end, ‘docks’ in Palma with the Titanic Foundation’s exhibition ‘Titanic The Reconstruction’. Nearly 100,000 people have already visited this travelling exhibition, which will be on display at the Sala Magna del Pueblo Español in Palma until 24 September.
Are you ready to relive the most famous shipwreck in history?
More than a century after the sinking of the Titanic, it is time to look back on the history of this enormous ocean liner. With a model that is 12 metres long, 2.70 metres wide and 4.20 metres high, ‘Titanic The Reconstruction’ faithfully reproduces the ship that was once—albeit fleetingly—a feat of engineering.
The 1:30 scale reconstruction of the Titanic includes a 3D recreation of the interior. Before you know it, you’ll be wandering through their cabins and cafes or looking for the differences between first and third class. You will also find documents, images, objects, sounds and lights that will make you feel like you’re on board one of the most promising sailing innovations of the early 20th century, which claimed the lives of around 1,500 people.
For a more immersive experience, the organisation provides you with a free audio guide that will narrate all the chapters of the iconic Titanic from its origins. Simply bring a pair of headphones—also available for hire—and your smartphone and scan a QR code to navigate through the most immersive sounds.
