Artifacts from the Titanic will arrive in Israel 102 years after the famous passenger ship sank in the North Atlantic Ocean.

An exhibition reenacting the ship’s story will be displayed at the Israel Trade Fairs Center in Tel Aviv from June 7 through August 25.

The exhibition has been created with a focus on Titanic’s compelling human stories, told through authentic artifacts and exacting recreations of the ship’s interior.


The cost of producing the exhibition in Israel is estimated at $3 million, with hundreds of thousands of dollars allotted to the insurance of the expensive artifacts, including clothes, eyeglasses, cutlery, cups, kitchenware and diamond embedded jewelry.
