Travel Tips - Titanic at the Reagan Library



You will not want to miss this fascinating look at Titanic, combining real artifacts with the real stories of the people onboard the ill-fated ship. Beginning May 27, 2017 and running through January 7, 2018, this new exhibit tells the story of the unsinkable ship in a way no museum has done before. Artifacts from passengers, dispersed over time, will be reunited in this exhibit for the first time in over 100 years.

Reuniting hundreds of Titanic artifacts which have not been together since the ship’s fateful night in 1912 with material and artifacts from the 1984-1985 discovery of the Titanic as well as with items from the 1997 movie, is a first-of-its-kind exhibition not seen anywhere else before. None of the artifacts displayed in this exhibition were salvaged from the wreck itself – a sacred final resting place.

Highlights include Sheet music for “Narcissus” which was found on the body of Wallace Hartley, the Titanic’s bandleader who refused to stop playing, even as the ship began to sink, A deck chair from the Titanic, one of only eight known to exist, as well as the only known “widow’s seat” deck chair from the Carpathia, The only known complete set of boarding documents and tickets from the Titanic, John Jacob Astor IV’s pocket watch, found on his body days after the Titanic sank, and his wife’s life vest she wore to her safety and The claim form from Margaret Brown (otherwise known as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown”) and the Egyptian Talisman she carried off the ship

This is not a traveling exhibition. To see the story of the Titanic told in such a unique way, visitors must come to the Reagan Library. Whether you are a fan of genuine history or larger-than-life Hollywood, this is truly an once-in-a-lifetime exhibition that sheds light on the Titanic in a first-ever way no museum has attempted before!
