Detected two and a half miles below the Atlantic Ocean’s surface, a joint U.S. and French expedition team, led by Robert Ballard and Jean-Louis Michel, discovered the wreck site of RMS Titanic on September 1, 1985. This discovery ignited decades of conversations, still ongoing today, about the timeline of events that ended in the ship’s sinking, leaving only 705 survivors. More than 400 recovered artifacts are on display at Luxorincluding playing cards, clothing items, china, currency and much more. Also on display is the largest recovered piece of the Ship, a 15-ton section of Titanic’s starboard hull, appropriately called the ‘The Big Piece.’

Did you know? Most paper or textile goods recovered from the wreck site that are on display at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition were found in leather goods, which act as a virtual time capsule thanks to the leather treating processes used in the early 1900s.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is dedicated to preserving the legacy of RMS Titanic and honoring lives lost during the tragic 1912 sinking. The exhibition is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. with last admission at 5 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit TitanicLasVegas.com.
