    New Immersive exhibition

    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 DEEPSEA CHALLENGER.

    International Premiere in Sydney, Opens 29 May 2018

    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 DEEPSEA CHALLENGER, the submersible vessel he designed that was built in Sydney.

    Visitors will experience how Cameron’s drive and passion for understanding and exploring our 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 DEEPSEA 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 James Cameron Vivid Ideas ticket also includes entry to the James Cameron - Challenging the Deep exhibition at the museum.
