James Cameron — Challenging the Deep

9:30am to 5:00pm Wednesday 14 November 2018 (Daily event)

James Cameron — Challenging the Deep is a major new immersive exhibition that traces Cameron’s lifelong pursuit of and achievements in deep ocean science, technology and exploration including his record breaking dives in Deep Sea Challenger, the submersible vessel he designed that was built in Sydney.

Visitors will experience how Cameron’s drive and passion for understanding and exploring the oceans has shone a light on the spectacular phenomena and mysteries of the least known place on earth and enabled maritime archaeologists to document and understand the shipwrecks of RMS Titanic and the German battleship Bismarck.

The exhibition immerses visitors into an underwater environment using cinema scale projections, artefacts and specimens from his expeditions; displays of artefacts from the design and construction of the Deep Sea Challenger; underwater recording, lighting, communication and diving technologies pioneered by Cameron; and props and costume from the feature films The Abyss and Titanic made possible by his drive to understand and expertise in meeting the challenges of the deep.

The exhibition has been developed by the Australian National Maritime Museum in collaboration with the Avatar Alliance Foundation and is funded by the museum’s USA Bicentennial Gift Fund.
