Titanic exhibit coming back to Minnesota


By Allie Shah


Who needs Jack and Rose when you have perfume salesman Adolph Salfeld ? Unlike the movie characters, Salfeld was a first-class passenger aboard the ill-fated Titanic, and although he didn't survive, his 62 vials of perfume samples did. They're among the new-found artifacts that will be part of the Science Museum of Minnesota's upcoming Titanic exhibit.

Museum officials announced Tuesday that "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" will open June 12 and run through Jan. 3, 2010.

Titanic fans may recall the exhibit was at the Union Depot in St. Paul about a decade ago.

Museum officials are touting the new exhibit as an "expanded and enhanced" collection, with more than 250 artifacts.
