Tuesday, May 8, is the next installment of our monthly series – Titanic Tuesdays.
The series – offered the second Tuesday of each month through September - features a 7 p.m. presentation and gives visitors an after-hours opportunity to see Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition as well as the other exhibits in Henry Ford Museum. When planning your visit, keep in mind that entry to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is timed, and we highly recommended that you purchase tickets in advance. The final entry to the exhibition is 9 p.m. on Titanic Tuesdays. (The rest of the museum closes at 9 p.m.)
The film was shot during the expedition of the Russian research vessel Akademik Mstislav Keldysh to the North Atlantic. The team made 17 dives in two state-of-the-art submarines. A self-proclaimed “ocean freak,” Low is known as a hands-on director. As a diver and adventurer, he understands the demands of the IMAX format like few other directors. Bringing the ill-fated Titanic to the big screen had been Low’s dream since its discovery in 1985.
Upcoming presenters for Titanic Tuesday include underwater photographer Tony Gramer, archeologist Ken Vrana, author Bruce Beveridge, and Titanic Historical Society member Ron Bartsch of The Henry Ford.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition runs through Sept. 30, 2012. Vistors can purchase tickets online or through the call center at 313-982-6001.
