Premier Exhibitions, recently announced that the popular Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is in its final weeks at the Premier Exhibition Center at Atlantic Station.
Visitors have until August 18, 2013 to experience the educational and emotional Exhibition which has been seen by hundreds of thousands since its opening in Atlanta.
According to a written press release, "while this is the Exhibition’s third visit to Atlanta, there are currently no plans for Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition to return to the state of Georgia, making this the last chance to experience the wonder and tragedy that is Titanic."
Featuring more than 200 artifacts, 100 of which were displayed for the first time in Atlanta, the Exhibition takes guests through a chronological journey of life onboard Titanic. From the Ship’s construction to passenger stories, the famous sinking and the modern day efforts to recover and conserve the wreckage, the story of Titanic is still fascinating, even 101 years after the sinking of the great ocean liner.
“Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition has been one of the most engaging Exhibitions we have hosted in Atlanta and we are honored to have hosted it during its 100 year anniversary,” said Theresa Nelson, director of public relations for Premier Exhibitions Inc., an Atlanta based company. “The Exhibition has left a lasting impression on those who have seen it and we hope everyone has the chance to experience the Exhibition before its close date.”
Exhibition highlights include artifacts from passengers’ personal items, pieces of the Ship such as the D-Deck door, a gallery devoted to Georgia connections, the latest video from the wreck site displaying how Titanic rests today and much more. Each of the Exhibition artifacts offer haunting, emotional connections to the lives lost or forever altered that fateful night.
Visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets online at www.TitanicAtlanta.com or at the Premier Exhibition Center box office at Atlantic Station.
