Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition
Guests can visit the San Diego Natural History Museum and take a look at over 200 items that were recovered from the ship in 1912. That sounds so interesting. A real glance into the past. Old clothes, jewelry, cooking and dining pieces, and even currency from when you could buy morgan dollars were recovered. From April 9th to the 13th, the price of admission will change to $19.12.
More than 200 items recovered from the shipwreck are featured in this special-ticket exhibition at the San Diego Natural History Museum. In the run-up to the 100th anniversary, the museum will extend its operating hours to 6:30 p.m. April 9-13 and will offer exhibit tickets for $19.12. Actors in Edwardian dress will roam the museum to speak with and tell stories to guests. Demonstrations of replica radios used on the Titanic will be presented from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, and a different Titanic-themed film will be shown at the museum every day that week. And during regular hours on April 14 and 15, amateur radio operators use modern equipment to attempt to communicate with a ship positioned over the Titanic wreck site. On the anniversary night, the museum will stay open late. The Titanic struck the iceberg at 11:40 p.m. April 14, and it slipped under the waves (with two-thirds of its passengers) just a few hours later, at 2:20 a.m. April 15. The museum won’t close on April 14 and will instead stay open until 3 a.m. April 15. The museum will reopen from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 15
