I'm pretty sure everyone knows the name Titanic. Probably most of you knows that the ginormous ship hit an iceberg and was lost. What a sad tragedy. Have you ever wondered about the history of the Titanic, how it sunk,what was it like, or how many people survived?
The Titanic Exhibit is located on the Atrium level of Luxor Las Vegas. Too bad we weren't able to get some tickets. I definitely would love to experience and see the exhibit next time.
The personal artifacts on display offer haunting, emotional connections to the forever-altered lives of those on board the Titanic. Visitors even have a chance to walk through authentically recreated first- and third-class rooms, with furnishings by original manufacturers.
The passenger list for the Titanic's maiden voyage read like a social register for the time, including names such as John Jacob Astor IV, who built the Astoria Hotel in New York; women's rights advocate Molly Brown; businessman Benjamin Guggenheim; Isidor Straus, of the L. Straus & Son fame, and his wife; and many others. There also were a number of immigrants on board, pursuing the dream of a better life in America.
Of the 2,228 passengers on board; more than 1,500 of them died. The exhibit concludes with a memorial wall honoring all those who lost their lives that fateful night."
