Four years ago, Gerry and I were in Las Vegas with Erika, and had our photo taken on this very staircase from the Titanic Artifact Exhibit.
Thanks to the great folks at Premier Exhibitions, we will be returning again.They have added another artifact to the collection, and it will be nice to see, as well as bring back memories.I loved the movie and have a copy of it here at home.
I remember what stood out in my memory the most about the exhibit was the piece of ice they had that you could touch to see how cold it really was that ill fated evening for those poor people.
At Luxor Hotel and Casino
Re-designed for Luxor, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition brings to life the story of the ill-fated Ship through authentic artifacts, dramatic room recreations and hand-on interactive experiences. See the artifacts, hear the stories, walk the deck and feel the iceberg at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.
Beginning its 10-year residency at Luxor December 20, 2008, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition has since provided visitors the opportunity to become a passenger and experience the tragic events of April 15, 1912. The Ship’s historical journey is laid out in chronological order: from the construction yards, to her maiden voyage, first and third class room re-creations, the Promenade Deck, the Grand Staircase, the fated sinking to modern day recovery efforts.
Unique to the Exhibition at Luxor are more than 20 never before seen artifacts including gaming chips, passenger personal papers and decorative sections from Titanic’s famed Grand Staircase. The Exhibition also showcases the largest piece of the Titanic ever recovered – the ‘Big Piece.’ This 15-ton piece of the Titanic’s starboard hull was raised 12,500 feet from the ocean floor and took more than 80 years, and two attempts, to surface.
I look forward to telling you all about it!
