REMEMBER, EXPLORE AND LEARN AT TITANIC: THE ARTIFACT EXHIBITION IN CELEBRATION OF 25th ANNIVERSARY OF WRECKAGE DISCOVERY


Guests Can Participate in a Trivia Challenge Throughout September

Las Vegas – Twenty-five years after the wreckage of the most infamous ship was discovered at the bottom of the North Atlantic, the voyage of RMS Titanic is revived through passenger stories, elaborate room recreations and authentic artifacts respectfully presented here in Las Vegas at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. Throughout the month of September, the Exhibition is giving guests a chance to rediscover the fateful journey of Titanic’s maiden voyage and put the findings to the test in a trivia challenge.

Remaining a mystery to scientists and historians for 73 years, the wreckage was finally discovered 2.5 miles down in the dark waters off the coast of Newfoundland on September 1, 1985. To celebrate this milestone, guests can learn more about the Ship’s secrets and treasures by reading information displayed throughout the Exhibition galleries and answering trivia questions on a scratch-off card. Guests who answer all questions correctly can return the card to the gift shop for a Titanic keepsake and to be entered to win a grand prize.

“The story of Titanic and her maiden voyage became one of the most heart wrenching stories of all time and continues to resonate with audiences around the world,” states Katherine Seymour, Vice President of Public Relations, Premier Exhibitions, Inc. “Remembering the discovery of Titanic’s wreckage is just one more way to keep the memory alive and preserve her legacy for generations to come.”

In an effort to remember the Ship of Dreams, RMS Titanic, Inc. (the Salvor-In-Possession of RMS Titanic and its wreck site) in partnership with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Waitt Institute is currently conducting a ground- breaking expedition to the wreckage site to do what no one has ever attempted before: take innovative measures to virtually raise Titanic twenty-five years after her discovery, preserving the legacy of the Ship for all time.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition provides guests with the opportunity to become a passenger as they move through expanded Exhibition galleries and view more than 20 never-before-seen authentic artifacts including gaming chips, passenger personal papers and decorative sections from Titanic’s famed Grand Staircase. Experience the Ship’s historical journey in chronological order: from the construction yards, her launch, first and third class room recreations, the Promenade Deck, the Grand Staircase, the fated sinking, to modern day recovery efforts.

Scratch-off cards and gifts available while supplies last. Tickets to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition are available at the Luxor box office or by visiting www.titanictickets.com.
