19 Jan-24 Feb. To the floor of the ocean in virtual reality.
Visitors to Milan’s Natural History Museum can now take a submarine ride almost four kilometres down in the North Atlantic Ocean to visit the wreck of the RMS Titanic.
In one of history’s most dramatic shipwrecks, the “unsinkable” Titanic foundered off Newfoundland on 15 April 1912 after hitting an iceberg, with the loss of over 1,500 passengers and crew.
Now the Milan museum offers a spectacular, 45-minute undersea voyage in virtual reality to steer a submarine to the wreck, guided by a scientific expert. Guiding the underwater vehicle by remote control, visitors will be able to explore the faithful recreation of the ghostly remains on the ocean floor in search of relics.
The experience is open to visitors aged over 12, and costs €5 on top of the museum entrance free. Visitors accompanying the underwater explorer will be able to follow the voyage on screens, and will not need to pay extra.
Online booking is obligatory on the museum website.
