I finally went! The day I was supposed to go happened to be a Sunday, and I learnt that a Sunday is not necesarily a good day to go to a museum or an exhibition in Barcelona. Very crowded. The queues went on for a couple hundred metres, opposed to when I went on a weekday, and we could enter directly, no queues at all.
My expectations were turned up high from reading about the exhibition, and I knew I had to see this. I remember the movie from 1997 so well, with the most handsome Jack Dawson, and the most beautiful romance with Rose DeWitt Bukater. It was all so captivating and touching and stong and terrible.
And it is terrible. All the poor people who died in this tragedy. An audio guide is included in the entrance fee and takes you out on this journey, from picture to picture, telling the story of many of the passengers onboard The Ship That Could Not Sink. Almost 200 original objects from the Titanic and passengers are displayed, as well as a couple of rooms built just as they were. There is a model of the ship as it was, and another model of the ship as it is now, at the bottom of the sea. Here, a first class cabin:
The model of the Titanic, open on one side so you can see rooms, cabins etc.
Third class cabin:

All in all, it is a very good exhibition, and you won’t leave untouched.
