A Night to Remember is a special fundraising event featuring a recreation of the last meal served on the R.M.S. Titanic. It will take place from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Saturday April 9, 2022 at Spring Mill Manor at 171 Jacksonville Road, Ivyland, PA 18974 and will benefit the capital campaign of the Johnsville Centrifuge and Science Museum.

The event will recreate the opulence that marked the only voyage of the world’s best known ocean liner. In addition to an elegant seven course menu, the event will include a champagne toast, a live quartet made up of some of the Philadelphia region’s finest chamber musicians playing period music and an exclusive exhibition of never before seen Titanic artifacts from the private collection of renown Titanic expert Craig Sopin, who is also Secretary of the Titanic International Society.  

“This will be a once in a lifetime event,” says museum President Michael Maguire. “We are thrilled that Craig has generously offered items from his collection for exhibit. It will really make the night memorable.”  Maguire added, “These kinds of Titanic last meal events take place every year around the April 14 anniversary of the Titanic tragedy.  We are honored to host this one, especially since it will be marking the 110th anniversary of the great ship’s sailing. We’ve had a lot of interest from the public in general as well as from Titanic aficionados who will be coming from all around the region dressed in their best period clothing.” 

Maguire continued, “Not many people know this, but the technology that was used to locate the Titanic in 1985 was funded by the Office of Naval Research and based, in part, on the side scanning SONAR systems that were developed by the U.S. Navy at the Johnsville Naval Air Development Center. In a way, the discovery of the Titanic was made possible by work done at Johnsville.”

Tickets for the event are available for $150 per person. Order forms and additional information about the event can be found at: http://www.titanicdinner.info 

About The Johnsville Centrifuge and Science Museum:

The Johnsville Centrifuge and Science Museum is a registered 501 c3 non-profit organization. It was founded in 2009 with a goal of creating a space museum and STEM education center commemorating the laboratories at the former Naval Air Development Center (NADC) once located in Warminster, Bucks County. NADC was the Navy’s premiere military research facility from the late 1940’s though 1996. Averaging 50 patents a year, the scientists and engineers at NADC helped win the Cold War.  The organization uses the pioneering work done at NADC as a springboard to inspire students to explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) careers, and to better inform local residents about the rich history of Bucks County. The organization has recently entered an agreement with Northampton Township for access to a five acre parcel of land at the corner of Hatboro and Bristol roads on which to build a museum and STEM learning center.
