MYSTIC, CT - Sea Research Foundation’s Mystic Aquarium presents “Titanic Week” Thursday, April 12 through Wednesday, April 18. Opening on April 12, guests will be among the first people to experience “Titanic – 12,450 Feet Below,” the Northeast’s largest, most captivating, permanent exhibit marking the centenary of Titanic.

Located in Mystic Aquarium’s Ocean Exploration Center and presented by United Technologies Corp., “Titanic – 12,450 Feet Below” is a long-planned, multimillion-dollar exhibit that takes guests on a journey to new depths of discovery through the eyes of the team that found Titanic. It represents a creative collaboration between famed ocean explorer and Sea Research’s Institute for Exploration President Dr. Robert Ballard, who first located the legendary shipwreck in 1985, and Tim Delaney, former 30-year Walt Disney “Imagineer” and current owner of Tim J. Delaney Design.

Bringing the vessel’s timeless history to life, “Titanic – 12,450 Feet Below” will captivate minds with a glowing iceberg that is cold to the touch, a bi-level adventure area inspired by Titanic’s engine room, hands-on experiences that unfold Titanic’s lingering mysteries and modern deep-sea technology that led to Titanic’s eventual discovery.

Guests can also enjoy special Titanic themed activities throughout the week. Kids can build their own remotely operated vehicle (ROV) through an interactive game, learn how ships float by creating a floating raft, hear a story reading of “Pig on the Titanic: A True Story” and have a chance to send live transmissions around the world through shortwave radio and Southeastern Connecticut Radio Amateur Mobile System (SCRAMS). Amateur Radio, also known as ham radio, heard Titanic’s distress calls and, through information gathered by operators using their shortwave receivers, news was reported for the printed stories at the time of the tragedy.
