As a complement to the stay of the exhibit, different activities and lectures have been organized, under the umbrella of a scientific and cultural program. A variety of topics will be addressed, with titles such as “Titanic and literature”, “The Cinema and Titanic”, “Shipwrecks”, “Food on board” or “The legacy and memory of the unsinkable Titanic”.
