RMS Olympic

The R.M.S. Olympic was the first of the triple-screw ocean liners. Built alongside the Titanic, it launched one year earlier and had a successful 24 year career.

Examining artefacts from the Olympic gives us an accurate idea of what life was like onboard the Titanic. Both the Olympic and Titanic shared the same fittings and layout, and were built side-by-side in the Harland & Wolff shipyard. The ships were so similar in fact, that many people to this day often mistake photos of the Olympic, for the Titanic.
