First, we have The Big Piece. This is the largest artifact from Titanic. It’s an enormous piece from Titanic’s side hull that was successfully recovered during RMS Titanic Inc.’s 1998 expedition. It weighs about 15 tons and measures 26 by 12 feet and is a stunning display of rivet work that went into building this majestic ship.
