There was a travelling exhibit at the Norwalk Aquarium several years ago that had artifacts taken from the wreck of the Titanic.  Some were personal effects which really brought the
tragedy home.  What made the biggest impact though was the wall of names of those who were lost at sea.  Very sobering.

They also had a interactive computer simulation showing what the crew saw and when.  It gave you a timed visual and full control of the wheel plus all three engines.  The object was to see if there was any possible way to miss the collision.  Turns out that if certain things were done a bit differently it would have been an extremely close call but they would have gotten by.

Well worth seeing.
