“FIRE & ICE,” a wonderfully-curated exhibit about the Hindenburg and Titanic, opened at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in Washington, DC on March 22, 2012. The exhibit includes rare artifacts from both ships and visual presentations that will be of interest to both adults and children, and features information about the Hindenburg and Titanic’s service as flying/floating post offices.
An excellent online tour of the exhibit is available at the Postal Museum’s website.
April 15, 2012 was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and May 6, 2012 will be the 75th anniversary of the Hindenburg disaster.
