Win Tickets to: SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure Drops Anchor at New York City's Discovery Times Square
NYC Premiere Offers Visitors a Rare Look at Some of the Most Valuable Treasure and Artifacts Ever Recovered Beneath the Surface of the Ocean
Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. and Discovery Times Square invite you to travel beneath the surface and explore SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure, an interactive, multi-media exhibit containing more than 500 artifacts from deep-ocean expeditions around the world. This not to be missed exhibit brings the world's most amazing deep-sea discoveries to the crossroads of the world at New York City's Discovery Times Square.
If you plan on visiting New York City or live in the tri-state area, you should bring your family to this wonderful exhibit. Children ages five and up will be fascinated with all the original artifacts from actual shipwrecks!
With the help of Odyssey's unparalleled deep-sea archaeological and technological capabilities, SHIPWRECK! offers visitors a unique look into the depths of the ocean through a mix of actual historical artifacts and hands-on, interactive computer games and exhibits. Artifacts found at the exhibit, such as rare bottles, porcelain figurines, and a 300-year-old carpenter's folding ruler, will transport visitors back in time as they get an up close and personal look at over 2,000 years of nautical history. Treasure seekers will find a stunning collection of gold and silver recovered from the deep, including the first ever display of silver recovered from the SS Gairsoppa over three miles deep.
"We're really excited about bringing SHIPWRECK! to Discovery Times Square in New York City. During the past 20 years, our team has discovered hundreds of shipwrecks in the deep ocean ranging from 2,000 year old Roman wrecks to WWII U-boats, and last year set a world record by recovering over 40 tons of silver from a shipwreck nearly three miles deep. One of our company's goals is to share our amazing work in the deep ocean with the general public and Discovery Times Square is a premiere venue. SHIPWRECK! allows visitors to get up close and personal with the artifacts we've discovered and to learn about the team, tools and technology necessary to explore the deep ocean," said Greg Stemm, Odyssey Chief Executive Officer.
One of the highlights for the children is the hurricane simulator! They can feel what it is like to sustain 75 mile per hour winds. They will want to do it again and again.
SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure is on display at Discovery Times Square, located at 226 W 44th St New York, NY 10036. For more information, please visit http://www.discoverytsx.com/exhibitions/shipwreck
