Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center will host the hugely popular "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" from September 29 through January 20, 2013.

On April 15, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg claiming more than 1,500 lives and subsequently altering the world’s confidence in modern technology. To mark the centennial anniversary, today, Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center announced that it will host the hugely popular "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" from September 29 through January 20, 2013.

"Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" will allow Sci-Port’s visitors to experience the story of the legendary RMS Titanic like never before through compelling human stories as best told through 200 authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations.

“Showcasing 'Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition' is part of our strategic plan to build new audiences and generate new revenue sources that contribute to our overall financial stability,” said Sci-Port President/CEO Ann Fumarolo. “It’s our mission to add science to whatever it is that we do, and we’ll show the science behind something with such historical significance as the sinking of Titanic. This Exhibition will expose new audiences to our mission.”

True to Sci-Port’s mission, families and students will experience real-world science, and participate in observation, critical thinking and experimentation, as they become explorers of the wreck through the Center’s hands-on programming and demonstrations that will accompany the exhibit.
