Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition

The Discovery Center of Idaho is excited to host the world-class Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, closing August 15th!

On April 15th, 1912, Titanic, the world's largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg. This exhibition is designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanic's compelling human stories, best told through more than 120 authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. Visitors are quickly drawn back in time to 1912, receiving a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger aboard Titanic. They begin their chronological voyage through Titanic, moving through the ship's construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking and amazing artifact rescue efforts. They will marvel at the re-created accommodations, and learn of countless stories of the maiden voyage.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition will be at the Discovery Center of Idaho through Sunday, August 15th.

Titanic was a feat of engineering and scale that is equaled only by the innovation and passion involved in the development of such human endeavors as the pyramids and our modern space rockets. The story of Titanic is a fascinating entry point for our visitors to better understand and be inspired by the innovative thought and mastery of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math of its builders, to always dream big, stay curious and learn from our mistakes.”

Emily Mahon, Educator Director at Discovery Center of Idaho

Interest in Titanic has endured for generations. In part, because of the sheer size and magnificence of this “unsinkable” ship. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, tells the stories of those on board Titanic’s fateful maiden voyage and includes real pieces from the shipwreck, retrieved from a depth of nearly two and a half miles. We are thrilled to be bringing this unforgettable experience to Idaho.”

Eric Miller, Executive Director at Discovery Center of Idaho
