DYK James Cameron — the director of “Titanic,” “Avatar,” and “The Terminator” — went on a deep-sea dive to the bottom of the ocean? 🐟

An immersive new exhibition, “James Cameron: Challenging the Deep,” is now on display at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, so you can deep dive his adventure, too.

The exhibition traces Cameron’s passion for deep-ocean science and technology, along with his record-breaking dive in the Deepsea Challenger, a sub he co-designed and co-engineered.

During the exhibition, Raleighites can:

  • Experience a deep-ocean environment with cinema-scale projections
  • See artifacts and specimens from Cameron’s journey
  • Discover the shipwrecks of the Titanic and the Bismarck
  • Learn about the technology behind underwater recording, lighting, and communication
  • See film and costume props from “The Abyss” and “Titanic”

The exhibition is on display through May 2023. Tickets ($16 for adults; $14 for students and seniors; $12 for kids 3-12) are available online, and for museum members, admission is free.
