PORTLAND, Maine — The Titanic has been at the bottom of the ocean since 1912 and the public may never be able to see it, but there are some pieces that we may be able to see.

Maine Today reported that more than 100 of the artifacts have been salvaged will be on display as part of "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" which opens Saturday at the Portland Science Center. The closing date of the exhibit has not been announced but organizers said it will be in Portland into the fall.

Visitors will be able to see the items that include perfume vials, a leather bag, a bowler hat and paper money. The exhibit also includes china, silverware and a porthole from the shop.

The items were recovered from the "debris field" surrounding the Titanic over the last 30 years or so.

The exhibit is designed for visitors to take a similar journey that the Titanic passengers took.

At the end of the exhibit, there is a memorial wall with the names passengers and survivors.
