Titanic Artifact Exhibition coming to a close in San Diego

August 7, 2012 by  

History hunters wanting to catch The Titanic Artifact Exhibition, which began its display in San Diego in February this year, will need to do so before it closes on September 9.

The largest ship of the time, the Titanic, sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912 after crashing into an iceberg, losing over 1,500 lives. Extensive scientific exploration and research has been conducted over the past century to determine exactly what happened and how preventative measures have been taken since that fateful day. Eight expeditions have been led by RMS Titanic, Inc since 1985 for the purpose of research and recovery.

The Titanic Artifact Exhibition takes visitors through a historic experience as each person takes on the identity of a passenger who was onboard the Titanic. Over 200 artifacts recovered from the ship’s wreck site are on display, along with amazing recreations of the ship’s interior features.

When historical and educational attractions arrive in a city such as San Diego for a limited time period, local printers are often called upon to provide print services. Catalog printing, for example, may be part of a marketing promotion.

In commemoration of this event, special events have been scheduled for the final weeks. Each Tuesday, a special feature entitled ‘Titanic Tuesday’ will offer free lectures, including one with Professor Douglas Bartlett from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. He recently spent seven weeks as a Chief Scientist on the Mariana Trench to the deepest point on earth.
