RMS Titanic, Inc., doing business as The Titanic Store, was formed for the purpose of exploring the wreck of the RMS Titanic and the surrounding ocean areas. The goal of RMS Titanic, Inc., is to retrieve artifacts and obtain oceanographic and scientific data, and then use that data and the retrieved artifacts for historical verification, scientific education, and public information. It is the Company’s purpose to preserve the memory of Titanic and all those who sailed with her, and to promote that memory with respect and regard for the Ship's historical and maritime significance. The Company was granted salvor-in-possession rights to the wreck of the RMS Titanic by a United States Federal Court order in 1994. That order was reconfirmed in 1996. This award includes the exclusive rights to recover artifacts from the wreck site. During seven research and recovery expeditions conducted in 1987, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000 and 2004, RMS Titanic, Inc. has recovered 5,500 artifacts, ranging from a massive 17-ton portion of the hull to a delicate child's marble measuring only one-half inch in diameter. RMS Titanic, Inc. maintains a comprehensive digital archive of these recovered and conserved artifacts as well as photographic data from the site.
As the only entity that has recovered and conserved objects from the Titanic, RMS Titanic, Inc. is in the unique position to present an unprecedented visible and tangible experience of the Ship from her conception and her tragic loss to the scientific magic of her discovery.
Using Titanic’s artifacts in concert with scientific data and social history, RMS Titanic, Inc. brings to the general public the educational and moving exhibition: Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. Such exhibitions are presented in an enlightening and dignified manner; one that embodies respect for those who lost their lives and that embraces the advances in marine science generated by the Company's recovery expeditions. Over the last ten years, over 15 million people worldwide have attended the exhibitions.
the Company is expanding its vision to take on the challenge of presenting
other exhibitions with subject matter that will further satisfy the public’s
interest in science, technology, social history, and the fine arts.
