Join CGW on a tour of the Ronald Reagan Library’s Titanic exhibit. Titanic at the Reagan Library is a fascinating look at Titanic, combining real artifacts with the real stories of the people onboard the ill-fated ship. 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.

This brand-new 10,000 square foot exhibition, reuniting hundreds of Titanic artifacts that 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.

After the exhibit, we will journey to the Tranquility Tearoom for a White Star Line Afternoon Tea. Each participant will receive a small gift of reproduction White Star Line ephemera, as would have been seen on the RMS Olympic, RMS Titanic, or HMHS Britannic circa 1912!
