Win Tickets to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition!

Visit Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at San Diego Natural History Museum before it sets sail September 9! This educational and emotional exhibition takes visitors through the entire journey of the iconic ship and features 200 artifacts recovered from Titanic’s wreck site. Once the exhibition leaves San Diego, there are no current plans for it to return to a West Coast city, so see it while you can! Tickets are $27 for adults and discounts for children, students, seniors, museum members, military and groups of 10 or more are available.

Visitors to the highly anticipated blockbuster exhibit will receive a replica boarding pass granting them permission to “board” the White Star Line’s R.M.S. Titanic, and from there the journey begins. The galleries focus on the legendary Titanic’s compelling human stories as best told through authentic artifacts recovered from the ocean floor and extensive room re-creations. Perfume from a maker who was traveling to New York to sell his samples, china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line, even pieces of the Ship itself, and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.

Here’s your chance to go for free! Comment on the blog below by Monday, September 3, 2012 at 10:00 AM PST and one lucky person will win two tickets to see this amazing exhibit. Please include your email address (not in the comment itself) so we can contact you if you are the winner.

The Maritime Museum of San Diego is building a full-sized, fully functional and historically accurate replica of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo”s San Salvador capitana or flagship of the Spanish expedition which first explored what is now the West Coast of the United States. Volunteers are constructing the vessel in full public view allowing visitors the opportunity to watch history come to life before their eyes. After construction, San Salvador will become part of the Museum”s fleet of historic and replica ships and will travel along the California coast as an ambassador for San Diego.

USS Midway Museum

Over 1,000,000 annual visitors to the USS Midway Museum enter a floating city at sea and walk in the footsteps of 225,000 Midway sailors who served our country and upheld the American ideals of strength, freedom and peace.
