Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition Permanently Docks at Luxor Hotel and Casino
Guests to Experience New and Never-Before-Seen Artifacts
LAS VEGAS – Premier Exhibitions, Inc. announced today the opening of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at Luxor Hotel and Casino. This blockbuster exhibition brings to life the story of the ill-fated ship through authentic artifacts, including the largest piece of Titanic ever recovered, dramatic room recreations and hands-on interactive experiences.
Moving through the redesigned and expanded exhibition galleries, guests will experience this important historical event, disaster and passenger stories in chronological order: from the construction yards, to her maiden voyage, the fated sinking, to modern day recovery efforts. Each visitor will become a passenger and feel the excitement of that April day as they step into authentically re-created first and third class cabins, stroll through the Promenade Deck and stop for a breathtaking glance at the social hub of Titanic – the Grand Staircase. Visitors will then feel the temperature drop, learn details of the sinking, touch an iceberg and understand the theories of this tragic tale.
“With more than 20 million visitors to date, we consistently see how Titanic resonates and touches everyone – you might say it’s everyman’s exhibition,” states Tom Zaller, VP Exhibitions for RMS Titanic, Inc. “We believe the reason this does so well in Las Vegas (and throughout the world) is that everyone can relate to someone on Titanic. The retelling of her story feeds our souls and curiosity time and again.”
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition showcases authentic artifacts recovered from two and one-half miles below the surface of the North Atlantic. Unique to the exhibition at Luxor is the crown jewel of the Titanic artifacts, the largest piece ever recovered – the ‘Big Piece.’ This 15-ton piece of the Titanic’s starboard hull took nearly two days and more than 40 hours to install in this blockbuster exhibition. In addition visitors will view more than 20 never-before-seen artifacts including gaming chips, passenger personal papers and decorative sections from the famed Grand Staircase.
Felix Rappaport, president and COO of Luxor, said, “The addition of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is another new and exciting reason to come visit Luxor. Titanic’s maiden voyage is a moment in time that has captivated us for decades, and Premier Exhibitions has done a tremendous job bringing authentic pieces of the story together to recreate this historic event.”
Tickets prices for Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition are $27 for adults, $25 for seniors, $20 for children 14 years of age and younger, and $24 for Nevada residents and Luxor hotel guests. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with last admission at 9 p.m. Please call 702-262-4400 for more information or visit www.Luxor.com.
