DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — An exhibit that pays tribute to the Titanic will arrive in Dubuque next year.

The National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium will host "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" from May 23 to Sept. 7, according to the Dubuque Telegraph Herald (http://bit.ly/1qzts9Ehttp://bit.ly/1qzts9E ).

The 5,000-square-foot exhibit will feature artifacts from the ship and full-scale replicas of rooms, according to the museum. It will be the museum's largest exhibition, taking up the entire second floor.

The displays will give visitor an experience modeled after April 1912. They will receive replica boarding passes and follow the journey of the Titanic from construction to its sinking and beyond.

There will be a higher admission cost for the exhibit, though specifics have not been determined. The exhibit is expected to be seen by 50,000 visitors.
