I can’t believe it’s been a century since the Titanic sunk after an iceberg hit the ‘unsinkable’ ship during her maiden voyage. RMS Titanic, Inc. is leading in the way in honoring and remembering the legendary ship through the authentic artifacts that have been recovered from the wreck site. Over 5,500 of these objects have been recovered from the ocean floor over the course of eight separate research and recovery expeditions to the ship’s final resting place 2.5 miles below the surface.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, RMS Titanic, Inc.’s interactive displays are currently running in Las Vegas, Orlando, San Diego, Kansas City, Houston, Detroit and Atlanta. Regardless of which one you decide to visit, you will be able to experience history first hand through a varied range of artifacts from everyday china service and flatware to passengers’ jewelry and personal papers; from gaming chips and currency to sections of Titanic’s hull and decorative sections from her famed Grand Staircase.
The largest piece of the Titanic ever recovered aka ‘Big Piece’ is being showcased at Luxor Las Vegas. This 15-ton piece of Titanic’s starboard hull was raised 12,500 feet from the ocean floor and took more than 80 years, and two attempts, to surface.
In addition to authentic artifacts and interactive video, each exhibition offers a variety of its own unique experiences including dinner shows, actors in period costumes portraying Titanic personalities who provide guided tours, demonstrations of replica radios, detailed models of the Ship and wreck site, room recreations and more.
Definitely a fun and incredibly educational outing for the family! For a full list of cities and exhibitions where individuals can view this exclusive content, visit www.rmstitanic.net.
