Virtual Reality (VR) Experience

A new experience to enhance your visit to Titanic The Exhibition

On September 1st, 1985 the legendary Titanic shipwreck was discovered, 4 kilometers below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean. Over the years since its discovery, only a select few have had the honor to explore the site of one of the world’s most infamous tragedies.

Now, a spectacular new virtual reality (VR) experience brings YOU on a journey through the wreckage of the mighty Titanic, available for exclusive viewing as a part of Titanic The Exhibition at Byron Kennedy Hall in Sydney. Through stunning graphics that place the visitor inside a virtual dive vessel, guests will travel to the depths of the Atlantic and explore the murky waters that surround the sunken ship. This state of the art virtual reality technology will fully immerse visitors in the impact of the tragedy, giving them an unparalleled view into what remains of “The Ship of Dreams.”

Join us for an unforgettable journey as we uncover the secrets that sank along with the ‘unsinkable’ ship.

The VR experience is offered as a separate ticket package which also includes entry to the exhibition. There is limited availability for the VR experience so prebooking is strongly recommended.

NOTE:  The time on your ticket confirmation is the time of your VR experience. Please allow one hour from the time of entry into the exhibition to fully tour the exhibition before your timed VR Experience begins.  The Titanic VR experience is stationed near the end of the exhibition. 

Due to anticipated demand for the VR experience, please arrive to the VR Experience promptly at your ticketed time.  To accommodate other guests, late arrivals may not be immediately accommodated.
