Family Friendly in Las Vegas: The Titanic Exhibition

Las Vegas is one of the top vacation destinations in the US, but is known to be an adults only kind of place. 

There is so much to do and see around Las Vegas that is geared towards families and children, and we are here to prove it! Get some awesome ideas on how to turn “Sin City” into a “Family Party”! 

Growing up, my family traveled a lot. We had extended family scattered around the US, and my father’s job as a pastor sometimes took the family to different parts of the country.

While in Las Vegas, we decided to visit the Titanic Artifact Exhibition inside the Luxor Resort to take a look back at a historic voyage that is something I grew up hearing all about from my dad.

The Titanic is very special to him-he has followed the story, finding the wreckage, retrieval of artifacts and pieces of the ship and more as a former member of the Titanic Historical Society.

From the minute you get your boarding pass you are thrown into the past. Each ticket holds the information of an actual passenger from Titanic’s fateful trip.

The exhibition is filled with authentic artifacts brought up from the wreckage that lies deep in the Atlantic. Clothing, dishes, personal effects and even letters are displayed throughout the tour.

Another neat recreation was the outside deck. This area of the exhibition is made to look and feel as though you are outside on the open ocean on a cold April evening!

Another favorite of my dad’s was the “Big Piece” This 20 ton piece of the ship’s hull was brought to the surface from the wreckage and very carefully preserved. The display has several informative signs that show you where on the ship this piece came from.
