National Geographic was the first to unveil images of the wreck discovered by National Geographic explorer Robert Ballard in 1985. Take a new look, from its historic beginnings to the latest research, at the ship that has captured the world’s imagination since it sank on April 15, 1912.

Explore an intricately detailed 18-foot model of the ship, a floor interactive and touch table, props from the 1997 film, including a full size lifeboat, historical photographs of the ship and passengers, and the latest imagery by National Geographic explorer James Cameron of the wreck on the ocean floor.

Photography is permitted in this exhibition.
