Titanic and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic
The story of the Titanic beyond the Hollywood glitz is told at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The city was at the centre of rescue and salvage attempts when the passenger liner struck an iceberg 100 years ago. Today, the museum and other sites across the city house the greatest collections of memorabilia and relics from the vessel.
One of the most poignant sites is the tomb of the unknown child, a small boy recovered from the sea. His grave was paid for by Halifax sailors. Many years later it was discovered that this little boy was buried beside his mother.
