Titanic exhibit of artifacts from survivors

SIMI VALLEY ― The Titanic exhibition at the Reagan Library, opened to the public May 27, continues until Jan. 7, 2018.

The exhibition displays artifacts from the survivors of the ship which sank more than 100 years ago in the Atlantic Ocean.

“None of the artifacts displayed in this exhibition were salvaged from the wreck itself – a sacred final resting place,” the Ronald Reagan foundation website states. “To protect the historic site and preserve it for generations, President Reagan issued the 1986 RMS Titanic Memorial Act to designate the wreck as an international maritime memorial.”

The Titanic exhibition will then move to London’s Victoria and Albert Museum for the February opening.
