Toronto - The Ontario Science Centre is hoping to uncover even more mysteries of the journey aboard the Titanic by seeking out Ontario residents with links to the passengers or crew members. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition opened at the Ontario Science Centre on June 2nd and runs through to January 6, 2008. The Science Centre and Premier Exhibitions Inc. have already received numerous calls regarding descendants and acquaintances but are anxious to hear and learn even more.

“The exhibition itself is an incredible journey through the events surrounding the voyage and sinking of the Titanic,” says Lesley Lewis, CEO, Ontario Science Centre. “There is also fascinating information about various passengers and crew that have been documented and shared with the world through the years. Several passengers had ties to Ontario and we are asking individuals across the province to contact us with their stories so we can keep that memory alive and make it a part of history.”

Created by Premier Exhibitions Inc., Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition features 280 artifacts recovered from Titanic’s undersea resting place in a series of galleries that trace the life of the “unsinkable” ship – from its design and construction through to its discovery, recovery and conservation.

The Ontario Science Centre, with financial support from the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund, is proud to present this assembly of artifacts collected by RMS Titanic Inc., the only company in the world authorized to recover artifacts from the Titanic wreck site. RMS Titanic Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Premier Exhibitions Inc.

Ontario residents with Titanic connections are asked to submit their stories by leaving a message at the toll-free line:1-877-963-4296.
