There is a traveling exhibit that includes artifacts from the Titanic like plates, silverware, glass bottles, etc .  They also have a lifesize replica of a stateroom and the grand staircase.  The exhibit I went to had a giant iceberg in a room with the temp set low so you could experience how cold it was the night it went down.  The final room was a memorial to all those that died. It was really cool. Definitely worth checking out if its in your area.

You're right he did have several ice warnings, but they truly believed that the ship couldn't sink. Even with the ice warnings he ordered "full speed ahead"....and they didnt have near enough lifeboats..enough for actually less than half of the people on the ship.

Quoting Mommytotwins44:

i am not mad per say. i just dont understand why so many people had to die. the captain had gotten several ice warnings and did nothing to stop it according to the documentary i have. thats all.

The one in Vegas is at the Luxor. I went last year on the 100th anniversary. It was really cool. It has as replica of the grand staircase. Lots of artifacts from the shipwreck, and even a huge piece of the ship.
