Titanic Remembered: 100th Anniversary Event
April 14, 2012 (7pm)
On April 14, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest ship, collided with an iceberg and sank in the early morning hours of April 15, claiming more than 1,500 lives. One hundred years later, the story of the fate of this ship, its crew and its passengers still touches and fascinates people all over the world. The Henry Ford invites you to spend a special evening commemorating this event, 100 years to the day, in the inspiring setting of Henry Ford Museum. Admission to the largest touring exhibition, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, in Henry Ford Museum March 31 through September 30, 2012, is included.

The night will begin with a First Class champagne welcome, hors d’oeuvres and exclusive access to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. Guests will then be seated in Second Class for a three-course dinner inspired by authentic White Star Line menus, followed by dessert service (loosely based on Third Class). Music and entertainment will be historically themed, and the evening will culminate with a reflective program at 11:40 p.m., when the ship struck the iceberg. See below for more event details, timeline and menu.

Note: This event is SOLD OUT.
