Lunch, 12:00pm – 12:50pm

While we enjoy our lunch, two buses will arrive for our trip to the Franklin Institute.

Social Event at Franklin Institute, 1:00pm – 4:30pm

Following the Plenary Session Tuesday, 12 March 2013, members and guests of ICDD are invited aboard the RMS Titanic for a journey into history at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia to see Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit.

This traveling exhibit showcases more than 300 legendary artifacts conserved from the ship's debris field, offering visitors a poignant look at this iconic ship and its passengers. The 15,000 square foot exhibition takes visitors on a chronological journey through the life of Titanic, from the building of the legend to life on board. The Exhibition has been designed with a focus on the compelling human stories as best told through authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. From china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line, to perfume from a maker who was traveling to New York to sell his samples, the many authentic objects offer haunting and emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.

Visitors will also have access to the continuing exhibit areas at the Franklin Institute.

Schedule:
1:00pm
buses will depart from ICDD headquarters for the Franklin Institute.

NOTE:  NO bus pick up at the Best Western Hotel. Please visit the restrooms before getting onto the buses. Restrooms are located on the sides of the lounge. There will be no restrooms on the bus.

1:45pm – Buses will arrive at the Franklin Institute.

2:00pm – Tour of the Titanic Exhibit. After which feel free to explore the museum until 4:25pm.

4:30pm – The buses will depart from the Franklin Institute.

The buses will first return to ICDD headquarters, so that ICDD members and staff who drove to ICDD that morning may get their cars before the Poster Session Reception. Then the buses will make a final stop at the Concordville Inn.

Poster Session Reception & Dinner, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

The Poster Session was held at the Gold Ballroom at the Concordville Inn.

6pm – 7:30pm - Poster Session
7:30pm - 9pm - Dinner
