Experience the wonder and tragedy of the world’s most famous ocean liner, The Titanic. Featuring more than 250 authentic artifacts as well as breathtaking replicas from the famous ship, the Titanic Exhibit truly brings history to life.

The collection showcases artifacts recovered from the Titanic wreck site, including luggage, the ship’s whistles, floor tiles from the first-class smoking room, a window frame from the Verandah Cafe, and an unopened bottle of champagne with a 1900 vintage.

One of the most heartfelt aspects of the Titanic Artifact Exhibition is the exploration of the personal stories of the passengers. As you tour the exhibit, the staff will share tales of those who boarded the ill-fated ship. Some stories reveal tragic yet romantic endings, with wives choosing to stay with their husbands instead of boarding lifeboats, adding a deeply emotional layer to the historical narrative.

Discover the secrets behind King Tut’s Tomb

Discovering King Tut’s Tomb – The Experience is essentially a journey back to 1922 when archaeologist Howard Carter unearthed the tomb of King Tutankhamun. Follow Carter’s footsteps through treasure-filled chambers, view the boy king’s iconic death mask, and explore the secrets of ancient Egypt.

The exhibit meticulously recreates the atmosphere of the tomb with its treasure-filled antechamber, hallways adorned with hieroglyphics, and the burial chamber itself, where the boy king rests in his sarcophagus alongside his iconic death mask.

The immersive experience extends beyond the visual, offering an optional audio guide for an additional fee. This audio guide provides visitors with Howard Carter’s exact words about his monumental find, enhancing the exploration with historical insights and details!

Minus5 Ice Bar

Ready to cool down in a truly unique way? Step into minus5 at The Shoppes at Mandalay Bay for an unforgettable icy escapade!

If entering a winter wonderland crafted from a whopping 100 tons of meticulously carved ice sounds like your idea of fun, ICEBAR is the activity for you. But what can you truly expect from this frosty adventure?

Well for starters, you’ll be immersed in a sub-zero environment where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is made of ice. From your drinking glasses to the walls, seats, and even sculptures, everything. Imagine sipping your favorite beverage, and instead of warming up, it gets colder with each sip – that’s the fun of ICEBAR!

As the name suggests, ICEBAR is kept at a pretty chilly temperature, but don’t worry – when you visit, they’ll deck you out in a parka and gloves. With some packages, you can even upgrade to a super stylish faux fur coat. These outfits not only will keep you warm, but they make for some pretty fun photo ops.

Grab a pint at Ri Ra Irish Pub

Also located in The Shoppes at Mandalay Place (between the Luxor and Mandalay Bay), Ri Ra Irish Pub is where you go to dine on dishes such as Irish potato cakes and the Reuben with corned beef brisket — all while enjoying live entertainment!

The bar/restaurant is set up to look like an Irish pub and there is a Guinness Store next door you can browse through for gifts/souvenirs. The store houses the largest collection of merchandise outside of Ireland!
