About the class
Join Jeffrey Taylor and RMS Titanic, Inc. on a virtual tour of the “Titanic Vault” — a space where artifacts undergoing conservation or on rest reside. In this live class, we'll examine artifacts that aren't traditionally on display. We'll also have the opportunity to ask questions about the Titanic, the wreck site, its recovery, conservation, maintaining a collection and the career paths related to these fields.
