Odyssey Marine's New Orleans attraction nearly repaired


Tampa Bay Business Journal
January 17, 2006

Odyssey Marine Exploration Inc.'s New Orleans attraction Shipwreck & Treasure Adventure will re-open Feb. 15.

The attraction opened for a few hours on Aug. 27, 2005 while Hurricane Katrina was bearing down on New Orleans. The museum has been closed since.

New Orleans played a significant role in the history of the SS Republic, Odyssey's first major deep-ocean archaeological recovery, and the city's tourism market will be an important customer base and learning model for future attractions, the company said in a release.

The attraction reveals the stories behind some of the world's most famous shipwrecks, their treasure and historical artifacts, and it allows visitors to interactively experience the adventure and excitement of deep-ocean shipwreck exploration through multiple hands-on exhibits, the company said.

Tampa-based Odyssey Marine Exploration (AMEX: OMR) has several shipwreck projects in various stages of development throughout the world.
