The enduring story of the ill-fated White Star liner RMS Titanic continues to fascinate people 108 years after the disaster. The ship and the tragedy of its passengers and crew are one of the few events in history that has immediate name recognition. There is a seemingly never-ending fascination with Titanic.
This summer the Oshkosh Public Museum will unveil a unique exhibition, Titanic: The Wisconsin Connection. Over two years in the making, this exceptional exhibition is based on in-depth research of Wisconsin passengers, conducted by Museum staff and researchers from Experiential Media Group. There were over fifty people on the great ship, in all classes, who were either from Wisconsin or were journeying to the state as immigrants. This exhibition tells the story of twenty of those passengers and is being developed specifically for the Oshkosh Public Museum.
Titanic: The Wisconsin Connection is a new form of exhibition for Experiential Media Group (E/M Group), the salvager and owner of the Titanic artifacts.
In addition to telling the story of passengers associated with Wisconsin, the exhibition showcases over 100 recently conserved artifacts, all recovered from the debris field over 12,000 feet below the North Atlantic.
