Hi Irene, what a shame you'll miss the exhibition. Unfortunately we don't have any DVDs specifically of the exhibition but there is a catalogue. You can order this by contacting Melbourne Museum Shop.
Irena & Audrey, we are not sure where the exhibition is going after Melbourne but you might like to contact Frontier Touring who are responsible for the event in Australia.
The floor does not move in the exhibition space but it sounds like you and your friends really became immersed in the full experience of the exhibition.
Hi Rhonda, to allow as many visitors to see Titanic as possible we have a range of session times available. Session times are scheduled until to 75 minutes before closing time most days, and 90 minutes on evenings. As our Titanic FAQs state on the website:
Visitors need a minimum one hour to view the exhibition. Most visitors will want to stay longer, and in this case we suggest visitors buy session tickets for earlier in the day or arrive early to secure limited tickets sold only on the day. Especially if visitors believe they will need more than the minimum time. The opening and closing times are disclosed on our website for each day to plan your visit also.
There are concurrent exhibitions related to Titanic hosted around the world. The exhibition on show in Melbourne is entitled ‘The Artefact Exhibition’ and seeks to include as many objects, facts about the ship and passenger stories from building the Titanic, the launch, the ship itself at sea and to its fateful night and sinking on April 15th. The last gallery of the exhibition briefly highlights the United States Senate inquiry in to the tragedy and sinking of Titanic. The British Board of Trade also held an inquiry to which Lord Mersey did conclude Californian might have saved many if not all of the lives that were lost.
The exhibitions primary focus is artefacts and passenger stories from Titanic though, other exhibitions around the world have included different stories, including the rescue ship Carpathia, White Star Lines, the Olympic etc. Due to the wonderful opportunity to host this exhibition in Melbourne we have included the Australian stories of the 6 passengers/crew involved in the Titanic instead.
We are pleased to read you enjoyed the exhibition. Thank you for your feedback.
Hi Susannah, it is great to hear that your mum loved the exhibition. It is exclusive to Melbourne Museum whilst in Australia and after we are not sure where it will be sailing to!
We love receiving comments, but can’t always respond.
Pleased to hear you enjoyed the exhibition - to chase up your photos though, you will need to contact Showtime Pictures.

Hi Sharon - Where medical emergencies prevent visitors attending the Museum on the day of their scheduled visit, Melbourne Museum will do their utmost to move a visitors booking to a more suitable date, if available and with appropriate notification, but otherwise tickets cannot be refunded or changed after the date and time of visit.
Thank you for your enquiry. At this point in time the Titanic touring exhibition schedule is not known beyond current exhibitions in London and Las Vegas. Please check the following website for exhibition schedule updates http://www.rmstitanic.net/
Titanic exhibition was on display between the 14 May 2010 to 7 November 2010 and has now closed and left Melbourne.
Ada, I am afraid this exhibition will not be in Melbourne and more than likely not returning. It has already showcased at Melbourne Museum and is currently overseas.
Is their a virtual tour available online?
