The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum is a must-see attraction when coming to Conejo Valley. But did you know that the library and museum hosts some exclusive exhibits throughout the year? It’s true, and the latest exhibit to grace the Reagan Library is of titanic proportions.
Titanic at the Reagan Library is a brand-new, never before seen exhibition spanning 10,000 square feet of the museum. The exhibit reunites hundreds of Titanic artifacts that have not been together since the ship’s fateful night in 1912. Titanic at the Reagan Library honors the 1,500 souls who perished in the tragedy, along with the 267 brave American seaman who perished on the Thresher and Scorpion.
Holding the exhibit at the Reagan Library is the perfect combination. President Reagan was instrumental in preserving the historic site of the Titanic by issuing the 1986 RMS Titanic Memorial Act to designate the wreck as an international maritime memorial. With President Reagan’s historic act for the Titanic site, it is important to note that the exhibit tells the complete story of the Titanic without using any artifacts off the ocean floor. This historic collection of real artifacts from the Titanic combines real stories with real artifacts from real people onboard the ship.
In addition to the real artifacts from the ship, the exhibit also includes props, sets and costumes from the blockbuster movie “Titanic”. Museum goers will be able to see a full-size life boat from the movie and the set of Rose and Cal’s Suite. It is truly a one of a kind display of history. You won’t be able to catch this exhibit anywhere else but at the Reagan Library!
The historic exhibit is open at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and will conclude on January 8, 2018. For additional information on the exhibit, please visit www.reaganlibrary.com.
