About the Exhibition

Discover the surprising link between a top secret Cold War mission and the 1985 discovery of the sunken Titanic by legendary oceanographer and National Geographic Explorer-at-Large Robert Ballard in our fascinating exhibition. Developed in collaboration with the National Archives and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, “Titanic” reveals the remarkable—and long-classified—story behind the historic discovery.

This extensive exhibition also transports visitors to the height of transatlantic steamship travel, displaying items from the luxurious ocean liner and sharing the stories—many for the first time—of some aboard the ship on its tragic maiden voyage. See incredible images and artifacts, like the coat worn by Titanic survivor Marion Wright Woolcott, and never-before-exhibited ship and expedition memorabilia, including the 8,000-pound crew module from the submersible Ballard and team used to survey the shipwreck.
