It takes more than just luck to find deep-ocean treasure.  Learn about the sophisticated technology used to discover and share long-lost time capsules of the sea. 

It’s a deep-sea adventure – 

*A replica of the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) ZEUS with a working manipulator arm attempting to pick up coins.  A separate ROV operator’s station on the second floor allows you to try your hand at treasure recovery the same way the experts do – remotely!

*Virtual reality experience where you can “fly” with ZEUS to previously unreachable depths to explore shipwreck sites.

*The Photomosaic Interactive is a multi-screen image of the SS Republic wreck site made up of thousands of individual images taken prior to the recovery of any artifacts.  Using a trackball, you can zoom in and locate coins, artifacts, and sections of the ship just as it looked after 140 years on the sea floor.
