At the beginning of the exhibit, patrons receive a boarding pass of an actual passenger on Titanic. On the back of each boarding pass is the age and the itinerary of that person. At the end of the tour, patrons find out if he or she survived the Titanic by finding the name on the wall memorial. 706 passengers survived, but 1,517 were lost. Even if all 20 lifeboats had been filled to capacity, there was only room in them for 1,178 people. The Titanic was the largest moving object of its time. It cost $7.5 million to build Titanic and carried a $5 million insurance policy. It would have cost about $400 million to build the ship today. More than 15,000 men worked on the Titanic for nearly three years to construct the hull and internal structure. More than 100,000 people gathered to watch the Titanic sail off to New York.
