The Tropicana Resort & Casino Is Pleased To Bring Back Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition For A Limited Engagement


Las Vegas, NV (May 24, 2006) - Due to its tremendous previous success, the Tropicana Resort & Casino is pleased to announce the return of Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, opening May 26 for a limited engagement. The Exhibition has been re-designed for Las Vegas with a focus on her compelling human stories as best told through more than 300 new artifacts and more extensive room re-creations. This includes, but is not limited to, a full-scale re-creation of the Grand Staircase, a newly expanded re-creation of the outer Promenade Deck complete with severe drop in temperature emulating that cold April night, 3rd class hallway punctuating the class distinctions, and 320 never-before-seen artifacts in Las Vegas.

"With more than 17 million visitors to date, we consistently see how Titanic resonates and touches everyone - you might say it's everyman's Exhibition," states Tom Zaller, VP Exhibitions for RMS Titanic, Inc. "We believe the reason this does so well in Las Vegas (and throughout the world) is that everyone can relate to someone on Titanic. The retelling of her story feeds our souls and curiosity time and again."

Moving through the newly re-designed and expanded Exhibition galleries, guests will experience this important historical event, disaster and passenger stories in chronological order: from the construction yards, to her maiden voyage, the fated sinking, to modern day recovery efforts. Attendees will marvel at authentically re-created first and third class cabins, stroll through the Promenade Deck and stop for a breathtaking glance at the social hub of Titanic -- the Grand Staircase.

"Our commitment to the Las Vegas community and the Tropicana Resort and Casino continues to grow," states Arnie Geller, President and CEO of Premier Exhibitions, Inc. "The demand for Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition during our most recent visit to Las Vegas resulted in two extensions and more than 300,000 visitors during its year long engagement. We look forward to continuing this success with the Tropicana Resort and Casino and meeting the continual interest in the Exhibition and the story of Titanic and her passengers."
