About Titanic - The Artifact Exhibition
Thanks to Leo and Kate -- not to mention James Cameron and nearly a century of other films and literature -- we're all pretty familiar with the basic story of the sinking of RMS Titanic in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912, claiming the lives of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board. Moreover, Cameron's 1997 Titanic film did a thorough job of walking viewers through the ship itself, satisfying the "you are there" desires of millions of moviegoers.
The technology and effort it took to lift this 20-ton relic to the surface makes it a marvel to behold, and the exhibit certainly lends a sense of both the size of the Titanic and the scale of the tragedy. In the end, however, it's the little pieces that visitors can relate to on a personal level: the intact pieces of china, a box of perfume samples belonging to a traveling salesman, and the personal testimonials of the survivors.
Even nearly 100 years later, with all 2,223 Titanic passengers and crew now dead, it's a story that still compels, and makes a visit to this exhibition a worthwhile stop on any Las Vegas visit.
