Las Vegas, NV - The fate of those who survived and perished on RMS Titanic became one of the most heartrending stories of all time. In remembrance of the 99th anniversary of Titanic's sinking on April 15, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition invites guests to enter into a journey of life on board the Ship of Dreams and experience the tragic series of events that unfolded in the icy waters of the North Atlantic in 1912.

Guests can learn about the events leading up to the unfortunate accident and view authentic artifacts, passenger stories, room re-creations and a real iceberg. In addition, the Exhibition will host the following promotions on April 15:

  • Enjoy buy one, get one for 99 cents admission to the Exhibition with coupon available in Las Vegas Magazine or online at Luxor.com.
  • 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.
  • Pay tribute to Titanic's passengers by sharing condolences at the Memorial Wall located outside the Exhibition where the names of all 2,228 passengers and crew are displayed.

    "The story of Titanic and her maiden voyage is one that continues to resonate with audiences around the world," states Katherine Morgenstern, Vice President of Public Relations, Premier Exhibitions, Inc. "Honoring the legacy of Titanic on the anniversary of the sinking is just one more way for each of us to celebrate the Ship's history and keep the memory alive for generations to come."

    The "unsinkable" Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage carrying the dreams of thousands of passengers ranging from the social elite to the common worker, each one boarding the Ship for an exciting adventure without suspecting what was to come. Just four days after setting sail, Titanic struck the infamous iceberg puncturing the hull and flooding the lower compartments. It took only two hours and 40 minutes for Titanic to sink, with an estimated 1,500 passengers perishing in the tragedy.

    Quick Facts

    • Tennis player R. Norris Williams and his father, Charles D., felt it was too cold to remain out on deck as the ship went down, so they went into the gym to ride the exercise bikes.
    • Titanic was one of the first ships in distress to send out an "SOS" signal; the radio officer used "SOS" after using the traditional code of "CQD" followed by the ship's call letters.
    • At the time of Titanic's destruction, the temperature of the water was only 28°F (-2°C). Most of those struggling in the water in their life jackets would have succumbed to hypothermia, while others may have had heart attacks.
    • At first most of the passengers did not believe Titanic was really sinking, hence the low number of 19 aboard the first lifeboat, even though it could carry 65.
    • Even if all 20 lifeboats had been filled to capacity, there would only have been room in them for 1,178 people.
