For one weekend only, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition presents Tales From Titanic, guided tours exploring the myths, mysteries and hauntings of the “Ship of Dreams,” at Luxor Hotel and Casino, October 30 – November 1.
With true stories about the untimely demise of the ship and its passengers and crew, as well as chilling firsthand accounts of paranormal activity in its world-famous exhibitions, a costumed expert portraying RMS Titanic stewardess Violet Jessop will guide small group tours three times daily at 11:30 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Each tour will run approximately 90 minutes. Starting at $24 for children ages 4-12 and $32 for ages 13 and up, tickets for the Tales From Titanic guided tours are on sale now at TitanicLasVegas.com or Luxor.com. Discounts do not apply.
Thrilling for all ages, visitors will hear tales of passenger premonitions and paranormal experiences as told by a reincarnated Violet Jessop, known for surviving multiple sinking ships including the ill-fated RMS Titanic.
With more than 400 authentic artifacts on display inside the Exhibition and dramatic recreations of the ship’s Grand Staircase, first- and third-class cabins, and Promenade deck, many employees and guests have reported paranormal activity believed to be caused by the ghosts or spirits of former passengers who have returned in search of their prized possessions that were salvaged from the ocean floor.
Throughout the limited-time tour, Jessop will detail haunted accounts of unearthly passengers including stories told of the “Lady in Black,” reportedly seen on the Grand Staircase crying out for her famous friend, American socialite Margaret Brown, posthumously known as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” Guests may also feel the presence of Ann Isham, one of only four women in first class to perish, who left her lifeboat to be with her beloved Great Dane when she learned he could not accompany her. Her body was never identified, but passengers aboard a passing ship reported seeing a woman’s body floating in the ocean holding on to the body of a large dog days later.
