The "Why Ships Wreck" exhibit at National Museum of the U.S. Navy informs visitors about the history of scuba diving, the process of Finding, Mapping, Identifying and conserving the shipwrecks, and presents case studies of found shipwrecks. Included are artifacts and images from the U.S. Navy's collections. The "Why Ships Wreck" exhibit represents the mysterious depths of the ocean by creating a dark atmosphere, using underwater themed interactive wall and floor projections and underwater ambient sound throughout exhibition. The intention is to transport the visitor into an environment of aquatic discovery; the visitor is the diver exploring new territory. Also, the experience is illuminated strategically by engaging the audience's senses in the subject matter.
