I wonder how long that'll last. I think there's inevitably a point the artifacts will be sold to private collectors unless they enter the hands of museums. At least at that point they'd find themselves stored in the back instead of some rich prick who just wants a conversation piece.Richmond businessman steers new course for Titanic exhibitions
Looks like there is some good news!
The traveling exhibitions will go unchanged and now Premier as a whole is turning a profit. And now the french have no say on the artifacts.
They also say they are going down once this year (im assuming in partner with the personal dives)
Also seems that they are hinting more possible exhibitions
As always with these kind of topics there is no wrong or right answer.These items should have all remained on the bottom of the Atlantic. I would have no interest in seeing what amounts to items robbed from a grave anyway.
There is virtually nothing recovered from the wreck that can't be purchased in an antique shop or, in some cases, a junk shop. These items have virtually no historic value other than the fact that 1500 people died alongside them.
That is sad. Do we have any updates about the artefacts?My bet if a bidding war does come, we are easily going to hit over 200 million, Wallace's violin went alone for 1.5 mil so my bet that thousands of artifacts and salvage rights are going to cost a pretty penny.
It should also be noted that JC and Bob Ballard where working together with Belfast to get the artifacts back, not a separate group.
This basically means that we can scratch out anyone who is deeply connected to the Titanic community on acquiring the artifacts
