About this event

For the first time, guests will see shoes worn on the Titanic by Second Class Passenger Alden Caldwell, age 10 months old.

The RMS Titanic sailed with 2,208 people on board - 135 of them were children. Their ages ranged from 9 weeks to 15 years, each with a story to tell.  In 2023, Titanic Museum Attraction will shine a light on their young lives, to speak their names, and to honor their legacy.

The iconic image of the children's shoes serves to capture the spirit of this major event and prepare our guests for a powerful new look into Titanic's final days though the eyes of children.

‘Life begins with baby steps, innocents at sea,

each pair of shoes were on a path lined with

Hope, Courage & Resilience.'
