During the temporary closure, the Exhibition will also be refreshed throughout, including the addition of new technologies and a photo station where visitors will be able to pose with prop lifejackets from a major motion picture. For the first time ever, visitors will be able to take personal photos within the Exhibition beginning Jan. 13, 2020. Additional enhancements to the Exhibition will be made throughout Spring 2020 and soon, the Exhibition will be able to host private events and receptions.

Of the 108 new artifacts and 10 additional artifact fragments being introduced, a few highlights include:

  • Chef’s Baker Hat
  • First-Class Smoking-Room Chandelier
  • Sole of a Golf Shoe
  • Brain Marie Cooking Pot
  • Alligator Skin Wallet
  • Calling Card of Madame Zephey

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share this special piece of history with Las Vegas and the Exhibitions’ visitors from around the world,” said Alex Klingelhofer, executive director of collections for Experiential Media Group. “These priceless artifacts, which have been painstakingly recovered and preserved, belonged to real people aboard the RMS Titanic. It’s important that we’re able to continue their legacies and share their stories through the display of their personal belongings and materials from aboard the ship.”

The grand story of the “Ship of Dreams” is revived through Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition at Luxor Hotel & Casino. With more than 400 real artifacts, guests embark on a journey to feel what it was like aboard the famous luxury liner. The exhibition includes dramatic recreations of first- and third-class cabins, a replica of the Grand Staircase and also houses a 15-ton section of the Titanic’s starboard hull, appropriately called the ‘Big Piece.’ Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition continues to invite visitors from around the world to travel back in time and experience the wonder and tragedy of the world’s most famous ocean-liner.

Aside from the temporary closure from Jan. 6-9, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is open daily from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. with the last admission granted at 9 p.m. For tickets and more information, visit Luxor.com/Entertainment.

As part of an experiential initiative, Titanic guests will begin their journey with the iconic #KingOfTheWorld photo, then #GoBelowDeck to be fully immersed in the Ship of Dreams. At the end of the exhibition, guests will learn their passenger’s fate, and will #NeverLetGo of the memory of Titanic. Enjoy #TITANICxVEGAS @titanic_exhibit.
