Titanic Expo Coming to Seaplane Harbor, Features Recovered Estonian Book ({{commentsTotal}})


A exhibit featuring artifacts recovered from the sunken passenger ship Titanic will open at the Seaplane Harbor in Tallinn on November 15.

Urmas Dresen, who heads the Seaplane Harbor's umbrella organization, the Estonian Maritime Museum, told ETV that there were three Estonians on board the ship, of whom at least one survived.

Over 5,000 items have so far been recovered from the Titanic, including a book in Estonian, which will feature in the exhibition.

The exhibition will run until the end of March next year and will take up a third of the museum's space.

ETV interviewed (see video) Titanic expert James Delgado, who has been at the site of the wreck twice. The English-language interview begins after a short introduction in Estonian.
