The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic says it will add an artifact to its permanent Titanic exhibit to commemorate the 101st anniversary of the ship's sinking.

The original 1912 report of an influential British investigation into Titanic's sinking was used by the Cunard Line to upgrade the safety standards for its vast fleet in the wake of the Titanic tragedy.

The museum said it would display the item on Monday.

The museum has an extensive collection of artifacts from the famous ship, which went down after striking an iceberg.

The luxury liner went down April 14, 1912 after striking an iceberg.

Corrections

  • In a previous version of this story, it was reported the artifact would go on display on Monday. This is incorrect, the item will go on display Tuesday.
