Titanic sails into Victoria on Vancouver Island for six-month run


Victoria's Royal BC Museum launched its six-month run of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition on Saturday. That's exactly 95 years to the day, April 14, 1912, that RMS Titanic struck the iceberg that sent it to the bottom of the north Atlantic Ocean.

I'd seen a Titanic exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle in 2001 and was underwhelmed. But after a sneak peek at the Royal BC Museum last month, I'm planning a return visit to Vancouver Island to see the show in its entirety.
