MAC to host Titanic artifact exhibition

SPOKANE, Wash. - This October, the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture will be hosting an incredible story telling exhibition. Artifacts from the wreck of the Titanic will be on display until May of next year.

On April 15, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg claiming more than 1,500 lives and subsequently altering the world’s confidence in modern technology. 

More than 100 years later, The MAC will pay tribute to the tragedy with Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, where legendary artifacts conserved from the Ship’s debris field are showcased, offering visitors a poignant look at this iconic Ship and its passengers.

Over the past 25 years, more than 40 million people have seen this powerful exhibition in major
museums worldwide - from Chicago to Los Angeles and Paris to London. RMS Titanic, Inc. is the
only company permitted by law to recover objects from the wreck site of Titanic. 

The Company was granted Salvor-in-Possession rights to the wreck site of Titanic by a United States federal court in 1994 and has conducted nine research and recovery expeditions to the Titanic rescuing
more than 5,500 artifacts.

The exhibition opens on October 21 and runs through May 20, 2018.

Ticket prices are as follows:

Adults: $18
Seniors (65+): $16
Children Ages 6-17: $10
College Students w/ID: $13
All active museum members and children 5 & under are free.

Hours for the exhibition coincide with the MAC's operational hours.
