Ever wonder what it would have been like to walk the decks of the Titanic? The Henry Ford Museum is giving visitors a chance to walk through room replicas and visit a re-creation of the ship’s Grand Staircase as part of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, running March 31 – September 30, 2012.

In addition to the replicas, the 10,000-square-foot exhibit features more than 300 artifacts and specific information about Titanic passengers with ties to Michigan. The exhibit observes the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, which collided with an iceberg on April 15, 1912, claiming more than 1,500 lives.

Visitors to the expanded and newly redesigned exhibit will travel back to 1912 to experience period reconstructions and artifacts from the ship and its passengers. The exhibit also includes details on the artifact rescue efforts involving divers.

As part of the exhibition, The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre is showing TITANICA, a captivating docudrama about the RMS Titanic, and is hosting a Titanic Tuesdays Speaker and Author Lecture Series.

Tickets for Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition include all day admission to Henry Ford Museum.
