The wooden panel made famous for saving Kate Winslet's life in the 1997 Titanic film is set to go on display in the UK for the first time.

The artefact - a rococo panel that featured above the entrance to the Titanic’s first class lounge - broke off when the ship famously sank in April 1912, and ended up being savlaged and housed in the Maritime Museum in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Director James Cameron regularly visited the musuem when researching for the Oscar-winning film which led him to use a similar piece of wood to stage Jack and Rose's emotional final moment.


The relic will come to Britian for a new exhibition at London's V&A. Ocean Liners: Speed & Style, which opens in February 2018, will 'explore the romantic and remarkable age of ocean travel and discover how ocean liners helped shape the modern world'.

Other highlights at the upcoming blockbuster exhibition include a Christian Dior suit worn by Marlene Dietrich aboard the Queen Elizabeth, and a selection of monogrammed luggage from a 100-piece set taken by the Duke of Windsor on the Maison Goyard.
