The aquarium said designs for the exhibit, which have been created by former Walt Disney Imagineer Tim Delaney, are almost complete.

In a release from the aquarium, Delaney said the exhibit “takes people 14,500′ below to the ocean floor, a whole new world and mysterious, awesome place to be. There, visitors can better appreciate the fascinating human drama and incredible technical story of how Dr. Robert Ballard found Titanic, as well as the powerful impact on the crew’s and public’s imaginations.”
