Lexington, Ky. (August 20, 2013)—The history of Titanic, one of the most significant Ships in history, will come to life at the Lexington Center Museum & Gallery once again this fall, thanks in part to sponsorship from KentuckyOne Health. The exhibition is scheduled to open October 5 and will run through January 26, 2014.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, presented by the Lexington Center Museum & Gallery and KentuckyOne Health, has drawn more than 25million visitors worldwide. This travelling exhibit includes more than 125 artifacts recovered from the wreck site of the Ship.
“We’re thrilled to help bring this impactful exhibit to Lexington,” said John E. Smithhisler, Market Leader, Central and Eastern Kentucky and President, Saint Joseph Hospital. “The story of the sinking of Titanic has captivated history buffs all over the world, and this exhibit tells human element to the story in a way that all visitors can relate to.”
Upon entrance into exhibition, visitors will receive a replica boarding pass granting them permission to “board” the White Star Line's R.M.S. Titanic, and from there, the journey begins. The galleries focus on the legendary Titanic’s compelling human stories as best told through extensive room re-creations and authentic artifacts recovered from the ocean floor, including delicate vials of perfume and china bearing the White Star Line logo.
Tickets for the exhibition go on sale today and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com or the Lexington Center Box Office (859) 233-3535. Adult admission, ages 14 and up, is $12. Children are $9 and senior citizens are $10. Discounts are available for groups of students and adults of 20 or more.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is organized by Premier Exhibitions, Inc, and RMS Titanic, Inc. which is the sole salvor-in-possession to the wreck site of Titanic, and owner of the collection of over 5,500 artifacts that have been recovered from the wreck site of Titanic.
