 Abandon Ship is a dynamic exhibition that explores the aftermath of marine catastrophes through the perspective of those who have been cast adrift at sea. The exhibition includes artifacts from such disasters as the RMS Titanic, Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance, the SS Andrea Doria, the 76-day ordeal of Steve Callahan, who was adrift at sea, and the 2009 wreck that led to the death of two NFL football players.
