The Titanic is a legend, living on from one event to another.  Whether it is the tragedy itself, the books that tell the vivid tale, movies made about the ship, or the discovery of this grand ship, the saddness and the memory of Titanic will go on in the hearts of those that have been moved by her story.  In this section of the web site, you will find information on how Titanic was found, see pictures of the wreck, hear about the controversy of retrieving artifacts, and see pictures of some of the artifiacts.  I recently had the opportunity to visit an exhibition of some of the artifacts collected, at the Florida International Museum, in St. Petersburg, FL.  The way they had the exhibit laid out, and the way they told the story, to me, was more moving than the vivid imagery used in Cameron's film Titanic.  If you get a chance, and you want to bring the Titanic to life, I highly recommend visiting an exhibit.  And if you have the money, and are brave enough, go visit the wreck itself.  I would love to see it first hand, but I don't think anything could prepare you to handle the experience, it would definitely be very emotional.
