Remember my post about that piece of wood from “Titanic” that Rose floated on? In it I discussed how that piece of wood in the movie was based on a real-life artifact recovered from the ocean after the sinking, and that the wood panel came from some paneling above a door in the First Class Lounge of Titanic. However, I forgot to mention where you can see it today.
The piece of wood can be seen at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at 1675 Lower Water Street.
And if you can’t make it there yourself, or you want to know where to find the piece of wood before going, you can even explore the museum and its Titanic exhibit with Google Street View! You’ll also find a Titanic deck chair and other artifacts there.
Some cutlery and a plate along with other artifacts recovered from the wreck of the Titanic.
