In partnership with the luxury cruise brand Cunard, the hotel ship RMS Queen Mary is due to unveil her brand new permanent exhibition called ‘The Cunard Story,’ on July 5, 2019, in Long Beach (Los Angeles) CA.
The exhibition will showcase Cunard Line's 179-year history, its relationship with The Queen Mary, the founder’s vision, the vessels it inspired and continues to bring forward, as well as their influence on global maritime policies, technological innovation, and immigration.
‘The Cunard Story’ is expected to showcase company's legacy via a movie, artifacts and photographs, and will also feature an ‘immigration salon’ which allows visitors to digitally explore ancestry databases. Via the offerings, guests can experience ancestor arrival dates along with specific vessels that carried them, allowing for a uniquely personal experience.
The Queen Mary transported thousands of travelers during her Cunard service, and about one in 5 immigrants sailed to the United States on a Cunard cruise ship at the height of the immigration period during the latter part of the 19th century and early 10th century.
