Special Exhibition:  

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition - Takes a journey back in time to experience the legend of Titanic like never before. The galleries in this fascinating Exhibition feature real artifacts recovered from the ocean floor, 120 of which have never been seen before in Arizona, along with reconstructions of the interior and personal stories of the passengers and crew.  Learn the real story of how one of the greatest engineering marvels became the most famous maritime disaster of the 20th century. You’ve never been closer to history than Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.  It’s a must-see during its limited time at OdySea in the Desert in Scottsdale. Open thru October 2019.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit docent Bruce Boyce, dressed in period costuming, hosts Sunday Stories straight from the exhibit floor.  This special storytelling series, held in an intimate setting, features a different topic each week about the charismatic passengers, crew members or the infamous ship.
