R.M.S Queen Mary

 Located directly across the harbor from the convention hotel, the R.M.S. Queen Mary is a step into the past, when travel by ship was elegant and grand. Rich with history and romance, from the first voyage in 1936, to the troopship days of WWII, to the golden days of the 1950’s, this is a very special experience.

Visitors begin their journey in the new Malek Theater and enjoy a 13-minute orientation film before entering the permanent galleries in the “Wave of Change” gallery, which covers a period of great upheaval throughout the 1960s and during the months leading up to the November 1968 presidential election. Travel through President Nixon's presidency and resignation and return to his origins in the “Back to the Beginning” gallery. From there, travel through Nixon’s life and his extraordinary accomplishments prior to becoming the 37th President of the United States. The journey ends with Richard Nixon’s post-presidency period and his contributions as elder statesman, his impact on American culture, a solemn remembrance of Mr. and Mrs. Nixon’s memorial services, and the short “Epilogue” film at the conclusion of the exhibit.
