The Empress of Ireland Museum welcomes you in a immersive exhibition space, where you'll go back in time discovering past and future of the Empress of Ireland transatlantic liner !
While passing through four major zones, you will discover the history of this steamship: the diving expeditions to the wreck, the testimony of passengers and their descendants, its terrible sinking in 1914 which made 1 012 victims in only 14 minutes, along with objects from the past attesting to life on board and to the construction of the ship in 1906.
A multimedia show (20min) make you feel like you are actually on board the Empress of Ireland in the hours leading up to its tragic end.
