Las Vegas' Virtual Titanic Exhibit Will Take You Into The Real World Of Jack & Rose
Even if you've never shouted, "I'm the king of the world" while playing in the pool or listened to "My Heart Will Go On" repeatedly, you will probably still enjoy this excellent adventure. The Titanic exhibit in Las Vegas now has a virtual experience that lets you explore the remains of the famous ship. You can delve into the ship's tragic past and get an (almost) hands-on experience of the exhibit.
The Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas is home to the Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, featuring a 25,000-foot area filled with relics from the ship's history.
The new virtual experience will bring the ship straight to your home and will give you access to over 400 pieces recovered from the wreck, and lets you explore all 13 galleries dedicated to 'The Ship Of Dreams.'
You can pick from two different virtual experiences. If you choose the Light version, you can pay $5 to walk around the galleries, learn about the artifacts, and the conservation of the ship's pieces, as well as see reconstructions and recreations of the vessel.
The Full version, which costs $15, includes everything above, as well as an audio guide and brand new footage from a dive during a recovery project from the ship's hull.
With either choice, your tour lasts for a week so you can revisit any part of the exhibit, or break up your explorations to last longer.
You can see everything from toiletries and the china used in the ship's dining rooms to a bottle of champagne that was preserved under the water.
Not only will you feel like you've been transported back in time to this legendary historical event, but you can learn new facts you never even knew about the iconic voyage of the Titanic.
And after you've gained all your newly found expertise, you can throw on the Hollywood version for a little refresher on a 90's classic.
Besides, a little history and a lot of Leo nostalgia, this might be the perfect antidote to our at-home blues.
