How did all begin

The company was founded to manage the maritime and historic legacy from the legendary RMS Titanic. After several decades of arduous work, a brilliant collection of original items was gathered, being the base to create Titanic The Exhibition.

After opening our first and very small exhibition – hardly 350 square meters – in the spring of 2000, the company has enlarged and improved it constantly, building what has become today one of the worlds most visited traveling exhibitions, with almost 200 original artefacts, recreations of inner parts of the ship and explaining her true story through the use of an audio-tour. More than 1.800 square meters of journey on board Titanic.

In 2008, Musealia premiered a new exhibition about human anatomy: Human Bodies. Created in collaboration with the pedagogical team responsible for the acclaimed cartoon series Once upon a time…Life – The Human Body, the exhibition becomes an amazing journey were 100 organs and 10 full bodies  – preserved by the plastination technique –  are displayed.

Nowadays, Musealia manages this 2 blockbuster exhibitions and provides also wide products and services for the museum community: merchandise, consulting services, marketing campaigns, etc.
