Walking to the office this morning there is already a sense of anticipation and excitement for the Sea Odyssey event which starts today until Sunday. I saw the diver puppet half submerged in Salthouse Dock.
The event was inspired by May McMurray’s letter which is part of the Merseyside Maritime Museum archives and library collection. May wrote a letter to her father William McMurray and sadly he never received it. It was returned to the family unread. The letter is currently on display in the Titanic and Liverpool: the untold story exhibition.
This weekend marks the end of another successful week for the exhibition which in three weeks has received over 100,000 visitors and we are all delighted by the overwhelming positive response from visitors. The curators have also been contacted by many relatives of crew and passengers who were on board Titanic.
