Remember my post about that piece of wood from “Titanic” that Rose floated on? In it I discussed how that piece of wood in the movie was based on a real-life artifact recovered from the ocean after the sinking, and that the wood panel came from some paneling above a door in the First Class Lounge of Titanic. However, I forgot to mention where you can see it today.
The piece of wood can be seen at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at 1675 Lower Water Street.
And if you can’t make it there yourself, or you want to know where to find the piece of wood before going, you can even explore the museum and its Titanic exhibit with Google Street View! You’ll also find a Titanic deck chair and other artifacts there.
it’s honestly so ….. weird when celebrities die. because we look at them as being invincible and we just expect them to always be there. but they’re real people too and i think we all forget that. he was suffering with depression and yet made all of us laugh…. it’s just crazy how much we don’t know about celebrities.
Rest in Peace, Robin Williams.

Thank you for bringing joy into my childhood and life with your voice and acting. Thank you for your contagious jokes, your wacky impersonations, and amazing acting. Thank you for making my childhood experience better, and thank you for bringing joy to those even though you battled with your own joy. If only you could have known how much you’ve impacted people. Your life work will live on, and you will never be forgotten. I know I won’t forget you. Thank you for helping me whenever I felt sad and having a film for every mood. Gone, but never forgotten.
