Sitting on its side at the bottom of the Aegean Sea, Titanic’s lesser-known sister ship is set to become a spectacular underwater seabed museum more than 90 years after the gigantic and luxurious Olympic-class ocean liner met her demise when she sank in 1916. The wreck of Britannic lies at a depth of 400 feet (122 meters). Covered in barnacles, the fireman’s staircase can be clearly seen on the Britannic wreck.
Titanic's sunken sister ship to become underwater museum
Almost 92 years after it sank to the bottom of the ocean, Titanic's less famous sister ship is set to get its own spot in the limelight. HMHS Britannic was built to be even bigger and safer than its infamous sibling but met a very similar fate when it sunk when an explosion gouged a hole in its hull in 1916.
