*ahem* Deleted for fifeables. Lemme try again:

Well, this doesn't have to do with the Titanic - but it does have to do with the Michigan shipwrecks. A group has found a shipwreck in Lake Michigan that may date back to the 1830s. It would be very interesting if it turned out to be from the 1840s instead - and was the ship that Caroline Ingalls' father went down in. (I know. . . . that's hardly likely . . . but still!) Here's a link to the story:

Fascinating! (And I read it the first time, and didn't notice any fifeables. )

There was one there. And that's all it takes. (I posted it twice before, though. The first time I deleted it for a fifeable - the second time it disappeared.)

I thought so, too, Krissy! Especially with that big exhibit coming up relatively soon.

We had the traveling Titanic exhibit here in 2008-2009. I went the Monday after Christmas (HUGE mistake - school was out and the museum was loaded with people!). I LOVED it!!! I was so thrilled that we got it because.....

We have a Titanic Museum here in Branson. I took my aunt one time, before they were completely finished with it....it was FANTASTIC! As you come in, you are greeted by the "crew" and given a boarding pass with your "Character Name" on it....one of the real passengers names......you tour the ship, see everything on it, see the clips, hear the music and all....when you are finishing up....you take your boarding pass and go by a wall that has ALL the passengers names on it, in the order of what level they were sailing, 1st class, 2nd class, etc.....as you walk and read, you compare your pass to the names, only to find out if you survived or died.....kind of a spooky ending to a wonderful tour....My aunt and I lived....my ex-husband....DIED.... HeeHee
.....I could NOT find the Titanic museum in Branson! Yes, I KNOW it is a big replica of the ship, but I couldn't find it!!! It was crazy! So I gave up and left. It was so hot that day, anyway. I hate hot weather. So I was just really frustrated and decided to leave.

Then we got that exhibit here. It was really, really interesting. And EVERYTHING you do at the Branson museum, we did here. Even the part where you are given a passenger name and you discover at the end whether or not that person survived. I believe I was a third class passenger that actually did live. I kept mine. It is in a drawer somewhere. I should look to see who it was again.

The tour sounds amazing! What a creepy end to it, though.
Yeah, I thought that whole part was morbid (I knew they did it in Branson and I thought it was odd, too), but of course I was going to see if I survived! Smile

They also had a Great Lake shipwreck display. If I remember correctly, though, they focused more on Milwaukee. I really thought the artifacts were interesting. But it was also quite sad to me at the same time. There was one thing that I thought was curious. The first time I ever went to the Abraham Lincoln museum in Illinois, I noticed that the moment you walk into the room that is supposed to be a replica of his coffin when he was lying in state in Springfield, there is a hush that comes over everyone. Almost as if people were actually walking past his coffin (the last time there was a loud jerk in there mocking it like he was supposed to be funny but otherwise it is SO QUIET). The quietness is almost eerie. Now I don't know if this happened otherwise, but when we entered the room that had the iceberg on display (there is this chunk of ice that is supposed to be like an iceberg that you can touch), the mood was the same as when you walk past Lincoln's coffin. Very quiet and somewhat eerie. No real point to that story. Just thought I would tell it. Smile

By the way, LOVED the gift shop that we had for it! I always meant to get back to that, but I never got around to it. No
