Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and TITANICA IMAX film will appear at The Henry Ford March 31 through September 30, 2012 in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the ship's tragic sinking.

Educational, emotional and appropriate for all ages, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition takes visitors on a journey through authentic artifacts and exacting re-creations of the Ship’s interior. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is a great catalyst for lessons in science, history, geography, language arts, math, and technology.

Vivid, stunning crystal-clear images of the Titanic will take your breath away on Michigan’s largest IMAX® screen!
