Clydebank Museum and Art Gallery has thrown open its doors for The Titanic Honour and Glory touring exhibition which started today.

It includes a collection of rare and previously unseen artefacts from the ill-fated liner RMS Titanic.

Visitors to the free exhibition will get to see an assortment of items from the liner's passengers and crew, including some of the beautiful china dinner plates used to serve meals aboard the stricken ship.

Also on show will be the nameplate from one of Titanic's lifeboats which collectively saved 706 of the 2,223 passengers.

There are also rare examples of tributes made in the aftermath of the sinking, including Titanic relief fund cheques which were given to help support the families of those who were lost.

The exhibition will also showcase a selection of props from the blockbuster film, Titanic, including some of the dresses worn by Kate Winslet and the dazzling Heart of the Ocean necklace.

RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic on April 15 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.

The sinking caused the deaths of more than 1500 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in modern history.
